After trying out the Rampage III Extreme a short while back, today we see if its little brother is worthy of the name.

Introduction

 

There is no doubt that the ASUS Republic of Games line-up is one of the best on the market. Sure, you can get a good board from this company or that, but as far as a single line goes, you would be hard pressed to find better than the Republic of Gamers. We have had the pleasure of testing out most of the current crop and are now able to take a look at another one.

 

This time on the bench is the Rampage III Gene. The RIIIG (as we will call it moving forward) is the little brother to the Rampage III Extreme. It is an X58 based Micro ATX board with some of the same features of the much larger RIIIE. You also get a few extras that are not found on the RIIIE; these extras seem geared exactly towards the LAN party crowd.

 

With a price tag of $239.99 from NewEgg.com it is about $150 less expensive than the RIIIE. Now, let's see if it still has the same performance level.
