ASRock Fatal1ty X99 Professional Motherboard Review

Cinebench

We used the ‘CPU’ test built into Cinebench R15 .

WinRAR

WinRAR’s built in benchmark and hardware test can help us outline the performance differentials between each motherboard. We record the amount of data processed after a 30-second run.

Handbrake Conversion

We measured the average frame rate achieved for a task of converting a 4.36GB 720P H.264 movie (in the MKV container) to one in the MP4 container.

Generally middle-of-the-road performance is shown by the ASRock Fatal1ty X99 Professional in our CPU-heavy tests.

Cinebench puts the part a handful of points off the pace of competing boards with the same clock speed. The WinRAR test is dominated by ASRock motherboards, and the Fatal1ty X99 Professional maintains the trend of strong performance.

Handbrake, however, puts the board a few frames per second behind Asus' leading solution.

AMD has detailed its new compression technology to reduce the storage space required for installing games. This innovation, called Neural Texture Block Compression (NTBC), compresses high-quality textures while maintaining "reasonable quality". According to AMD, NTBC can decrease a game's storage footprint by up to 70%, reducing the installation size of titles like Call of Duty from 150GB to 45GB.

  3. You guys make some weird choices. You have trouble using the 2666MMhz g.skill memory and opted to use memory from Corsair, but later in the review you say that the 3000Mhz G.Skill memory was performing fine. So why not do the main tests with the 3000Mhz memory instead of 2666Mhz memory from another manufacturer. It seems to me that the 3000Mhz and 2666Mhz memory modules of G.Skill are closer to each other than 2666Mhz memory from different manufacturers..

  4. so what’s better for gaming the z170 or the x99
