For overall system performance we use PCMark Vantage. This is run in both x86 and x64 mode to give the best indication of performance.

The X58 Extreme holds its own here with the performance you would expect from a system using an SSD.

For synthetic gaming tests we used the industry standard and overlockers bragging tool, 3DMark Vantage. This is a test that strives to mimic the impact modern games have on a system. FutureMark went a long way to change from the early days of graphics driven tests to a broader approach including physics, AI and more advanced graphics simulations.

3DMark Vantage uses the DX10 API in addition to having support for PhysX. Due to the PhysX support and our use of an NVIDIA GPU, we run with PhysX enabled and disabled to give you the best indication of real system performance. For testing we use the Performance test run.

Again, we see good performance from the X58 Extreme. Note the drastic drop in CPU score when we turn PhysX support off. We also see the actual score drop by about 1,000 points.
