Asus Rampage IV Gene X79 Motherboard Review

2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: This is the latest X79 motherboard from Asus and by the looks of it this is a pretty amazing little board. It features a Micro-ATX form factor, but it comes with just about all of the bells and whistles that you’d find on a full size ATX board. It’s also in their ROG line of motherboards, so you know it’s meant to perform. So let’s have a look at the features of the chipset first and then we’ll go over the specific features of this motherboard.

Asus Rampage IV Gene Review

  • Summary: For example, look at the benchmark chart below and see how the Asus boards dominate the Intel DX79SI. How long will this performance advantage last? We’re not sure, and perhaps the other vendors will cry foul, but for now, we’ll take the free speed. Overall, the board is fast, it’s compact, and it’s everything you’d need to snap into your microATX chassis of choice.
  • Pros: Fast, capable, and well outfitted for a MicroATX board.
  • Cons: Fast, capable, and well outfitted for a MicroATX board.

ASUS Rampage IV Gene

12 March 2012
  • Conclusion: We were expecting decent performance from the Rampage IV Gene as it is a ROG board, but we never expected the performance it delivered. Granted it does not overclock as high as the Extreme board, but to anyone who understands the sheer power delivered by the Extreme board would not be surprised by this. Also, the Extreme board is much larger compared to the mATX Gene.

ASUS Rampage IV GENE X79 Motherboard Review

Hi Tech Legion
1 March 2012
  • Summary: At a price of $289.99 USD, the ASUS Rampage IV Gene motherboard falls in the category of enthusiast gaming motherboards. The Rampage IV Formula motherboard performed very well at stock values and was able to tune our i7 3820 Sandy Bridge-E CPU to 4.625GHz. There are many people that make good use of a smaller computer system. Gaming laptops are unbelieviably expensive.
  • Pros: Intel X79 Chipset, Extreme Engine Digi+ II, Up to Quad Channel DDR3 2400, Black Metallic Caps, mATX Form Factor, Intel LAN ROG GameFirst, SupremeFX III, PCIe 3.0 with SLI/CrossfireX, USB Bios Flashback/ROG Connect, ProbeIt, Go Button, Debug LED, Q-LED, External Clr CMOS, ASMedia controller (Extra 2 SATA 6Gb/s ports), 1500uF Audio Power Capacitor, Redline PCB Split, Gold Plated 3.5mm Jacks, PCB Shielding
  • Cons: M-ATX DIMM design can limit some high performance coolers.

  • Conclusion: First off we have the ROG sticker and the door hanger, followed by the instruction manuals and drivers and utilities CD. A very handy sticker chart is also available for you to label all your cables inside the case. Then there are six SATA cables, one ROG Connect cable, an SLI bridge, and a set of Q-connectors. And bringing it home is the rear I/O panel cover.

The best motherboard doesn’t necessarily have to be the one that has the most of everything, simply because some of us don’t use a great number of capabilities that a device has.

Review: ASUS Rampage IV Gene

30 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Mit der ROG-Serie bedient ASUS jeweils die Gamer und Overclocker. Mittlerweile findet man endlich eine klare Abstufung im Sortiment des Herstellers bezüglich Gaming- und Overclocking-Motherboards. Das Rampage IV Gene Motherboard zielt mittlerweile konsequent auf die Gaming-Gemeinde wohingegen das Extreme-Board kompromisslos auf Overclocker ausgerichtet ist. Bei den Produkten der Gene-Serie speziell ist deren mATX-Formfaktor.

Тест и обзор: ASUS Rampage IV Gene

26 March 2013
  • Summary: Материнская плата ASUS Rampage IV Gene подкупает не только красивым внешним видом и дизайном. Если требуется, она может проявить всю свою мощь и функциональность в полной мере. В данном отношении перед нами явный представитель семейства материнских плат Republic of Gamers с огромным потенциалом в маленьком форм-факторе. А не урезанный по функциональности "огрызок" Micro-ATX, каким являются многие материнские платы на рынке.
  • Pros: Отличный набор функций, Хорошие возможности разгона, Низкий уровень энергопотребления, Хороший и проработанный BIOS, Очень хорошая раскладка
  • Cons: Отсутствуют

Asus ROG Rampage IV Gene Mainboard

21 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Das Rampage IV Gene von Asus ist ganz klar als Top-Platine für Intels Sandy-Bridge-E-Prozessoren zu bezeichnen, denn Features und Besonderheiten der beiden ausgewachsenen Schwester-Mainboards sind auch im vorliegenden Modell zu finden. Die Einschnitte, die der Hersteller angesichts des geringeren Platzangebotes treffen musste, beschränken sich weitestgehend auf die Erweiterungsslots. Dennoch sind Multi-GPU-Systeme mit zwei Grafikkarten problemlos realisierbar.

ASUS Rampage IV Gene

12 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Fazit Mit dem Rampage IV Gene liefert ASUS ein sehr anspruchsvolles Mainboard und beweist, dass man auch im Micro-ATX-Format höchste Ansprüche befriedigen kann. Diese Hauptplatine ist sehr stabil, schnell, gut ausgestattet und bietet umfangreiche Übertaktungsoptionen, die kaum Wünsche offen lassen. Das automatische Übertakten per "CPU Level Up" funktioniert problemlos, doch die Spannungsschraube dreht ASUS für unseren Geschmack wieder ein paar Umdrehungen zu weit.
