Well first things first, with this being the first X99 motherboard I am testing I don’t really have much to compare to. Lucky for us, for the most part overall performance benchmarks on a motherboard are more a formality than anything else. What we are looking for are numbers that don’t perform up to the average, in other words we are keeping an eye for any weird bugs that you might run into while using the board day to day. It’s hard to compare the numbers to any other boards because they are really based on the memory, CPU, and video card more than anything else (a little on the SSD as well in some tests).  Even so  I still ran the X99 Deluxe through our standard benchmarks to see where it lands. Nothing stood out as an issue on the benchmarks below, but if you happen to be building a rig using this board, the i7-5960X, and a GTX 780, you can expect some kick ass results as shown below.

We couldn't very well review a CPU without a motherboard right? Well I took a look at the Asus X99 Deluxe that I also used for testing the 5960X.
