We used the Bioshock Infinite demanding ‘Ultra’ setting and a 1920×1080 resolution to push today’s gaming hardware. Our data was recorded using a section of the game, not the built-in benchmark.
Metro: Last Light
We used a 1920×1080 resolution and the Metro: Last Light built-in benchmark set to ‘High’ quality to offer an intense challenge for the gaming hardware while also making playable frame rates a possibility.
We used a 1920×1080 resolution and the Tomb Raider built-in benchmark set to ‘Ultimate’ quality.
If gaming is one of your requirements from ASRock’s X99E-ITX/ac motherboard, you have no need to worry about its performance. The mITX motherboard holds its own in our Metro: Last Light and Bioshock Infinite tests.
We have observed Tomb Raider’s liking for memory performance in the past, and that is observed again with the small performance hit handed to ASRock’s X99E-ITX/ac motherboard and its dual-channel memory.
