ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Extreme Testing:

3DMark: The latest release version of Futuremark's popular 3DMark suite is designed to let a wider range of the user base have the ability to run the tests and make  a comparative analysis of the gaming prowess of their systems from entry level PCs to notebooks and Extreme Gaming PCs.

  • Cloud Gate
  • Fire Strike






Batman: Arkham Origins is the third installment of the Batman: Arkham series released in October 2013. This action-adventure game, based on DC Comics Batman super hero, was developed by Warner Bros. Games Montréal and released by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Batman: Arkham Origins continues to use the Unreal 3 game engine.


  • DX 11 Enhanced
  • GeForce TXAA 
  • PhysX = ON



Part first-person shooter, part survival horror, Metro: Last Light is the followup to the extremely popular game Metro 2033. Developed by 4A games and published by Deepsilver, this game uses the 4A game engine. In this game set a year after the missile strike on the Dark Ones you continue on as Artyom as he digs deeper into the bowels of the Metro.




  • DirectX 11
  • 4xMSAA
  • Global settings = Very High
  • PhysX = Off
  • DOF = Off




Gaming performance at this time is really dependent on the video card when the CPU is not going to be your limitation. In the 3DMark tests, there is a roughly 400 to 500 point swing between the ASUS ROG boards in the Cloud Gate tests. That margin shrinks considerably in the Fire Strike tests. In both the Batman and Metro tests, we see, at most, a 2 FPS gap between the boards top to bottom. In the Metro: Last Light test specifically, the results fall within a less than 1 FPS envelope.
