When it came to memory performance, we saw that the ASUS SABERTOOTH Z97 MARK 1 sat back a little compared to the ASRock Z87 Killer. Looking above, though, you can see the ASRock Z97 Extreme4 doesn't have the same problem with it lining up with its previous generation brother.

Overclocking, though, just like we saw on the Z87, really brings nothing to extra memory performance.

Gaming Test - 3DMark 8

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0

Across the board, you can see very little change between the four different setups under 3DMark 8 at both presets.

Sleeping Dogs, at stock, also sees all three boards run almost identical; looking above, you can see overclocking does bring a slight boost in performance at all resolutions.
