When it comes to looking at DDR4 quad-channel memory performance against DDR3 setups that are present on our other boards here, you can see just an absolute ton of bandwidth being offered.

Read and Copy performance is about double, while write number are increased by around 50%. In conjunction with the massive amount of cores and huge cache, everything comes together to create a beast of a system.

While we didn't expect too much of a change to gaming performance, looking above, you can see the new X99 platform gives a slightly bump in performance under 3DMark 8, and a more noticeable difference under Sleeping Dogs.

While not really needed as the FPS is already strong, it's nice to see that the GeForce GTX 780 Ti appreciates the extra breathing room. Overclocking gives us again a little movement under 3DMark 8, but you can see, again there is quite a nice jump under Sleeping Dogs, especially at the lower resolutions, where the CPU is more important, as less focus is put on the GPU.
