Synthetic Benchmark Testing
SiSoft Sandra 2014 SP3
The Sandra benchmarks remain a fast and easy way to determine system quality from a CPU and memory subsystem perspective. The Rampage V Extreme easily matched performance with the other Intel X99-based boards, indicating optimal implementation of the CPU and memory subsystems.
LinX is a graphical interface for CPU-based testing using the Intel Linpack benchmarks. It serves as a good indicator of proper system CPU functioning and is considered one of the most intensive CPU benchmarks currently available. LinX was run with Memory set to All and for a total of 3 runs. This test was repeated three times with the highest repeatable GFlops (Giga-Floating Point Operations Per Second) score recorded.
This CPU torture test is a proven method for identifying possible issues with the CPU to motherboard interface layer. Again, the Rampage V Extreme performed within expectation when its performance was compared to the other test systems. Good performance in this CPU intensive test further proves that the design of the CPU to board interface is working well within specifications.
Multimedia and System Benchmark Testing
Maxon Cinebench R15
Maxon’s Cinebench R15 benchmark can be used determine a system's ability to render 3D content based on their Cinema 4D animation software. The CPU benchmark test was run three times, with the highest reproducible Cinebench points score recorded.
No issues here with the Rampage V Extreme's performance. The board easily powers through this benchmark, proving its metal when stacked up against its Intel X99-based competitors.
