Looking at memory performance, we can see that the ASUS board sits a little bit back compared to our other setups here. This isn't the first time that we've seen ASUS motherboards sit a little back when it comes to memory performance.

 

Overall, though, you can see that the lower memory performance has very little impact on performance under key areas.

Gaming performance is pretty much just as you'd expect, with stock performance being pretty similar across all our setups.

 

Overclocking sees a bit of a performance bump at the lower resolution; apart from that, you can see there's no real change.
