Amazingly, each of the tested boards received TWO awards and none of them scored less than 8/10. In fact, three mainboards went home with a solid 10/10 score ... amazing!So, what did the performance testing section of this review tell us? Well the main finding is that each of the X58 motherboards we tested today offers great performance in pretty much every task. There are some where the Rampage 3 Extreme scores best, such as the video encoding. In others it's the UD9, for example overclocking and the MSI XPower offered good gaming performance. ASRock also impressed us with their USB 3 and SATA 6GB/s performance.
This means that the choice of board will likely come down to two areas for each consumer, price and features. So what does each board offer on these categories?
