The test shows xenomorph-tastic scenes using heavy tessellation among other DX11 features. The benchmarks independent GUI was used for testing shown below.
Running the benchmark on the XFX Radeon HD 6950 we cranked up all the image quality settings in the benchmark to the highest level possible, so we were running 4x AA and 16x AF with SSAO enabled at both 1920×1080 and 1280×1024.
Benchmark Results: The ASRock X79 Extreme9 fell right in line with our other Intel X79 motherboards. At 1280×1024 the ASRock X79 averaged 62.1 frames per second which is only .3 frames per second behind the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme. Increasing the resolution to 1920×1080 the ASRock averaged 45.5 frames per second which is only .1 frames per second behind the ASUS R4E which holds the top spot.
