ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Extreme 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 M8E is outpacing the field in the Home suite, while it falls into the middle of the pack in the Work tests. In the Sandra tests, the overall score is less than that of the M8H and M8G, but is at the top of the balance of the comparison boards. In the Cinebench testing, the M8E is right on target with the performance delivered, while in the X.264 testing the Maximus VIII Extreme is the highest performer, stock and overclocked.
