Unigine Heaven Benchmark


Version and / or Patch Used: 3





Moving into our testing at 4K only, you can that both setups perform nearly on top of each other. Outside of a little bit of fluctuation, there's really not too much to see here.



Phantasy Star Online 2


Version and / or Patch Used: Standalone Benchmark





PSO 2 is a little older and not quite as intensive. Because of that, you can see that the X99 setup gives us about a 5% increase in performance. Overall, though, it's not a huge performance increase, and really not one that would convince you to spend the money going to X99, if you're already on X79.
