There are plenty of people out there who are going to turn up their noses at an mATX board, or who simply aren’t going to see any need for one that is aimed squarely at the enthusiast, with features and pricing to match. Well, the ASUS Rampage III...

Maximum power in a minimalist package. That's what the new Asus Rampage III Gene is all about. But is it even a sensible idea to force-feed enthusiast-class performance and features into a small-form factor motherboard? Quite possibly, yes....

The fact that the Rampage III Gene looks and feels very familiar isn't a coincidence. ASUS has taken the Rampage III Formula and chopped off a PCI-E slot to given us a micro-ATX board that retains almost all of the features in a smaller form factor....

The original Rampage II Gene was a good micro-ATX board for those looking to build a compact system. Rather than make significant changes to the already successful product, ASUS has simply updated technology with the inclusion of the SATA 6 GB/s and...

If you are in the market for a full featured enthusiast class microATX motherboard you owe it to yourself to put the ASUS Rampage III Gene on your short list. It will be hard for another other uATX motherboard to come along that is actually better...

The Asus Rampage III GENE is a very solid motherboard providing strong performance, impressive overclocking abilities and up to date features. Without a doubt this is the most powerful MicroATX motherboard available and at $240 US it is also the most...

Final Words & Conclusion What an interesting little motherboard. It offers the brute power of the LGA 1366 Intel Core i7 platform, you can combine it with triple channel memory (dual works fine as well of course) and you get to play with the coolness...

The Gene series has always occupied a bit of a niche market as power and portability rarely go hand in hand when it comes to PC hardware. Nevertheless with the Rampage III Gene Asus has refined an already-impressive product and injected the features...

Considering the size of the PCB ASUS have worked wonders to fit everything in. There is however one aspect we would have changed. That is the order of the add-in card slots. As we...

If, in some perverted alternate reality, Watty Piper had been more interested in PCs than trains, ASUS' latest piece of Republic of Gamers rolling stock, the Rampage III Gene would be the The Little Board That Could. The Rampage III Gene has more...

The Asus Rampage III Gene sits strangely in the LGA1366 market. It's part of Asus' RoG brand, so there’s no question that it’s aimed at enthusiasts and overclockers, but it’s a micro-ATX board so it benefits from being cheaper...

Throughout the review, I compared the Rampage III Gene to the Extreme and that in itself is testimony to its quality. The Gene wasn't designed to be the engineering masterpiece that the Extreme is and the price tag, at over £100 less, reflects...

The ASUS Rampage III GENE is a compelling solution if you need substantial performance from a small-form-factor motherboard. Able to run an Intel Core 980X chip, 24GB of RAM and two high-end GPUs, the board's intelligent layout and rich feature-set...

So to continue the theme from our introduction, does the Rampage III Gene still have the same genetics as the Rampage III Extreme that won our hearts, or is it more of a red-headed stepchild?Clearly, as our results indicate, it most certainly deserves...

Selv om Intels X58-brikkesett har vært på markedet siden slutten av 2008, er plattformen forsatt regnet som den heftigste plattformen for Intel-prosessorer. Plattformen er nemlig den eneste av Intels plattformer som har støtte for Intels...

La nuova ASUS Rampage III Gene conferma l’oramai consolidata leadership che la casa taiwanese possiede nel segmento delle schede madri high-end e in generale destinate all’overclock. Questa mainboard offre ottime prestazioni da un lato e una...

Das ASUS Rampage III Gene ist ein würdiger Nachfolger des Rampage II Gene. Im Kern hat sich aufgrund des weiterhin verwendeten X58-Chipsatzes nichts verändert, aber das Drumherum wurde nicht nur in der Farbwahl aufgefrischt. Gegenüber...
