Performance

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). When I tested the Asus board I didn’t have any real numbers to compare it too, now that I have run the X99 Classified through the same tests and we can see how they compare.

The differences in 3DMark were minimal at best with the Classified coming out ahead in two of the three benchmarks, by a small amount. In PCMark it pulled ahead as well with a little more of an edge than before. In Passmark and all four games their numbers were almost spot on with each other. There are obviously no weird quirks in performance with the X99 Classified.

With the LAN hitting right after the Intel and AMD launches I nearly forgot to publish our coverage of the EVGA X99 Classified. Check it out!
