Gaming Performance

The performance varied slightly in Dirt 3 and at 1680x1050 the Asrock X79 Extreme9 was the fastest X79 board.

When testing with Just Cause 2 we also saw a small variation in frame rates, which saw roughly 2fps separate the slowest and fastest boards.

The Witcher 2 provided a 3fps difference between the fastest and slowest X79 boards at 1680x1050. The slower boards included the Gigabyte G1.Assasin 2 and MSI X79A-GD65(8D), while the Asrock X79 Extreme9 was again the fastest of the bunch.
