ASUS ROG Rampage V Edition 10 Testing:

LAN performance will be tested via a utility to gauge the performance of the onboard network solutions. The motherboard being tested will be connected via a Gigabit switch to another system with an integrated Gigabit network solution on board.

iPerf is a small lightweight utility run from the command prompt and can be used to measure both TCP and UDP performance on a network. iPerf is cross-platform software and open source. The test is configured to run for 20 seconds with a window size of 256 KB and four simultaneous streams that should be able to saturate the TCP link on a good NIC.

 

RightMark Audio Analyzer 6.25 is used to test the sound solution on board each motherboard. Nothing beats a good set of ears and headphones, but this is a graphic representation of the capabilities of the installed hardware. Sampling mode is 24-bit 44kHz.

Using iPerf, each of the tested boards deliver 949Mbits/s with the testing parameters used. It's a result that is right where I expected the board to reach. Much like each of the comparison boards I have tested, the CPU usage during the testing stayed between one and three percent. This test, while simple, generates a consistent result time and again.

When you test the sound of a board, it is going to be subjective and dependent on being able to pick up the nuances of the instruments or background sounds when gaming. Sound testing, by nature, is something not everyone will agree upon. I started out by using my standby movie, Saving Private Ryan, on Blu-ray as my starting point. The Omaha Beach landing scenes are a strong test for any system due to the dynamics of the battle and the multitude of sounds. ASUS' Supreme FX sound delivers a great experience while watching this movie. In the gaming tests, I found the sound quality delivered to be excellent throughout the tests with Battlefield 1. I listen to a variety of music to see how well the Supreme FX sound handles the tunes. I listened to everything from early Journey (Infinity) to some metalcore bands and even some Five Finger Death Punch. ASUS put together a top notch audiophile-grade solution on the Rampage V Edition 10 and it shows when you put it to the test..
