Asus X99 Deluxe Benchmark Results

Unfortunately, the X99 Deluxe didn’t stay long in my possession, so I wasn’t able to fully test it and play with it long enough. Also, aside from using Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 memory, I was able to test it with Kingston’s HyperX Predator DDR4-3000 memory kit. You can check out the benchmark results from our HyperX Predator DDR4 review here.

AIDA64 Engineer “is a streamlined Windows diagnostic and benchmarking software for engineers.

RealBench “uses real, open source applications to test your PC as it would perform in RL. Although it can be competitive, it’s not primarily designed to be more hardcore and time consuming – it’s a benchmark for everyone.”

3DMark 11 is a DirectX 11 video card benchmark test for Windows. 3DMark 11 makes extensive use of DirectX 11 features including tessellation, compute shaders and multi-threading. It includes the Deep Sea and High Temple Graphics tests, a Physics test and a Combined test.”

3DMark Fire Strike is a showcase DirectX 11 benchmark designed for today’s high-performance gaming PCs. It is our most ambitious and technical benchmark ever, featuring real-time graphics rendered with detail and complexity far beyond what is found in other benchmarks and games today.”

3DMark Sky Diver is a DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming laptops and mid-range PCs. Use 3DMark Sky Diver to benchmark systems with mainstream graphics cards, mobile GPUs, or integrated graphics. It is especially suitable for DirectX 11 systems that cannot achieve more than single-digit frame rates in the more demanding Fire Strike test. Sky Diver is only available in the Windows editions at this time.”

wPrime “is a leading multithreaded benchmark for x86 processors that tests your processor performance by calculating square roots with a recursive call of Newton’s method for estimating functions, with f(x)=x2-k, where k is the number we’re sqrting, until Sgn(f(x)/f'(x)) does not equal that of the previous iteration, starting with an estimation of k/2. It then uses an iterative calling of the estimation method a set amount of times to increase the accuracy of the results. It then confirms that n(k)2=k to ensure the calculation was correct. It repeats this for all numbers from 1 to the requested maximum.”

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!

  1. I have one, this board is still unstable, slow boot, unstable during overclocking, lot of issues during boot, ASUS support is use less, they do not accept their mistakes of producing unstable boards. I had to change 3 ASUS deluxe boards to get one stable one.

    my other pc H87 Asrock boards boots in 8-10 seconds, but this one takes a whole minute, even with Samsung pro 128gb SSD.

    very soon I will change this board and go for Gigabyte, MSI or ASrock

  2. I just bought the 3.1 version of this board. See lots of praise, and lots of heartache. Hope I am the former? Decided to go with x99 and 5820K instead of Z170 and Skylake i7. Hope I dont have to return it and I can OC my CPU and Ram. Got a 980 TI to go along with it. Ive built many computers, but this is my first gaming centric build. Wish me luck!
