ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Impact Testing:

PCMark 8 is the latest iteration of Futuremark's popular PCMark system benchmarking tool. This version uses a series of industry standard tests in five separate benchmark tests to measure aggregate performance.




SiSoft Sandra 2014 is a diagnostic utility and synthetic bench marking program. Sandra allows you to view your hardware at a higher level to be more helpful. For this benchmark, I will be running the overall performance measurement tool that utilizes a series of tests to comprehensively measure system performance.

Overall Score



Cinebench R15 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 X.264 format. The default benchmark is used with an average of all four tests on each pass taken as the result.



Looking at the PCMark results, the ASUS M8I is delivering performance on par with the more robust Maximus VIII Extreme in both tests. In the Sandra tests, we see much the same thing between the M8I and M8E. In the Cinebench testing, the M8I and actually all the ROG boards from ASUS are delivering very comparable performance. In the X.264 testing, the Maximus VIII Impact is right in line with where the rest of the ROG Z170 line up is performing both at stock speeds and when overclocked. It's more or less an expectation of performance that proves out even with the small size of the board.
