Gaming Benchmarks

 Gaming Benchmarks: 3DMark Vantage, FarCry 2, GTA IV, Mafia 2
 Single and Dual Videocard Testing

For our next set of tests, we moved on to some in-game benchmarking with FarCry2, GTA IV, and Mafia II. Following the motherboard's instructions for graphics card placement, we ran out tests in both single and dual card configurations to test PCIe efficiency. 

Our gaming tests confirm what we've seen in previous benchmarks. While both Asus boards hold a slight performance edge over the EVGA Classified at stock settings, the new Rampage III is not able to distance itself from the Rampage II. While it took the top spot in 3DMark Vantage and GTA IV testing, during FarCry2 and Mafia 2, the older board actually scored higher frame rates.
