ASUS ROG STRIX X99 Gaming Motherboard Review

3DMark

3DMark is a multi-platform hardware benchmark designed to test varying resolutions and detail levels of 3D gaming performance. We run the Windows platform test and in particular the Firestrike benchmark, which is indicative of high-end 1080p PC Gaming.

Ashes of the Singularity

Ashes of the Singularity is a Sci-Fi real-time strategy game built for the PC platform. The game includes a built-in benchmark tool and was one of the first available DirectX 12 benchmarks. We run our tests using DirectX 11, a 1080p resolution and the Crazy preset.

Unigine Valley

Unigine Valley is a GPU stress testing and benchmarking tool that succeeds its predecessor, Unigine Heaven. Valley makes use of dynamic lighting, depth of field, ambient occlusion and dynamic weather patterns. We utililise the built-in benchmarking tool with the Extreme HD preset.

Overall gaming performance differences between X99 and Z170 are negligible, as we also discovered in our i7 6950X review. Where consumers play games that have a greater dependency on complex physics, or have multi-GPU setups, the ROG STRIX X99 Gaming makes sense. For single-GPU gamers Z170 is still the way to go.
