Looking at copy and read performance, you can see the ASUS ROG Maximus VII Impact lines up with our other Z97 options. Write performance, on the other hand, is very strong, and comes clear ahead of the other options here.

Under 3DMark, we can see gaming performance is a little stronger on the ASUS ROG Maximus VII Impact, while Sleeping Dogs numbers are in line with the ASRock Z97X Killer, which manages to come out ahead by a decent chunk when compared to the ASUS Maximus VII Formula.

 

When it comes to overclocking, we can see a bit of a performance boost at the lower resolutions, while no real change shows in the Extreme preset under 3DMark, and at 2560 x 1600 under Sleeping Dogs.
