ASUS ROG Maximus VII Hero Testing:
Cinebench 11.5 is useful for testing your system, CPU, and OpenGL capabilities using the software program, CINEMA 4D. We will be using the default tests for this benchmark.
X.264 Benchmark: This benchmark is used to measure the time it takes to encode a 1080p video file into the x264 format. The default benchmark is used with an average of all four tests on each pass taken as the result.
AIDA64 Extreme Edition 3.0 is a software utility designed to be used for hardware diagnosis and benchmarking. I will be using the Cache and Memory benchmark tool to measure memory performance.
Through the Cinebench and X.264 benchmarks, the performance gain over Z87 is minimal at best. The AIDA results follow this trend with some improvements in memory latency due to the tuning on the Maximus VII Hero.
