Press Release: ASUS Republic of Gamers Announces Rampage V Edition 10

Article Tags:

Almost two years ago, ROG introduced to the world Rampage V Extreme, an absolute overclocking beast that dominated with 28 world records upon launch and kept on breaking records - even this year!

To celebrate the 10th year of ROG, a special edtion of the beast has been unleashed - ROG Rampage V Edition 10

The Haswell-E platform and DDR4 on the Rampage V Extreme gave consumers support for memory capacities up to 128GB for the first time. The new Intel family of Broadwell-E X-series processors for the LGA-2011v3 socket again allows for that much memory with eight DIMMS and adds a bevy of improvements.

Intel's first 10-core desktop processor features Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, up to 40 PCIe 3.0 lanes (great for the lucky ones who invested in more than two graphics cards in SLI/CrossFire, and upcoming DirectX 12 games can surely look to take advantage), and comes fully unlocked for overclocking fun. That's where Rampage V Edition 10 comes in; One-Click 5-Way Optimization, Fan Xpert 4 cooling plus Turbo Core app, Extreme Engine DIGI+ power, and second-gen T-Topology all come together to squeeze every single point-zero-something megahertz out. Every bit counts, that's why ROG is again breaking records, already three World Records and 14 Global First Places to be exact.

The new Rampage takes performance to another level but of course, it doesn't stop there. New Aura RGB lighting has been added, including on the PCIe slots and an extra 4-pin RGB-strip header to allow lighting effects to go beyond the motherboard itself. The new SafeSlot PCIe is reinforced to prevent graphics cards from sagging and/or breaking the slot.

High-end performance can be expected in every aspect of the board. SupremeFX Hi-FI DAC (Digital to Analog Converter), dual op-amps and headphone amp all controlled by Sonic Radar II audio software to make sure you can hear everything you need to hear in the highest quality possible. Dual Intel Gigabit LAN, 3x3 802.11ac Wi-Fi and GameFirst IV have you covered in terms of network speed and flexibility.

Having 40 PCIe 3.0 lanes will work wonders if you have the desire to load up every port and slot. We challange you to fill up the four PCIe X16 slots, a PCIe X4 slot, a PCIe X1 slot, NVMe U.2 port and M.2 slot, a whopping ten SATA ports, four USB 3.1 ports (two Type-A & two reversible Type-C), eight USB 3.0 ports and six USB 2.0 ports. For that you'd need a pretty darn big EATX case! 

There isn't an I/O shield at the back anymore, it is now pre-mounted for easier motherboard installation and great aesthetics.

Rampage V Edition 10 is equipped with many exclusive technologies to aid extreme overclockers and hardcore gamers. These include Extreme Engine Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) for the cleanest, smoothest power, second-generation ASUS T-Topology technology for maxed-out DDR4 performance, and 5-Way Optimization for easy and stable overclocking with one click, and Fan Xpert 4 for the ultimate cooling.

Rampage V Edition 10 features multiple technologies to deliver the best gaming experiences. The external SupremeFX Hi-Fi audio amplifier ensures flawless audio, dual Intel Gigabit Ethernet and GameFirst combine forces for no-lag networking, and all-new ASUS SafeSlot is the reinvented, reinforced PCI Express® slot with insert-molding tech that adds strength to every build — protecting gamers’ graphics-card investments. The new board introduces a patent-pending pre-mounted I/O shield for style, easier construction and enhanced durability.

Rampage V Edition 10 also accelerates every transfer with extensive connectivity onboard, including U.2, M.2, USB 3.1, and 3x3 802.11ac Wi-Fi.


World-beating performance: Three new world records and 14 global first places achieved

Demonstrating its unrivaled performance, ROG Rampage V Edition 10 has set three world records (WR) and achieved 14 global first places (GFP) in a series of exacting 2D and 3D benchmarks. ROG’s new performance monster achieved the highest CPU frequency for an Intel Core i7-6950X processor, with a frequency of 5726.84MHz. Detailed benchmark scores for all categories are listed in the table below.

Intel's LAN has the serious double advantage of reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput, so there’s more processing power available for games.

The new motherboard also allows gamers to unleash the full power of multiple graphics cards for visuals that never stutter, and with just the right amount of space between each card. Onboard switches enable DIYers to selectively enable or disable cards, while a handy SLI®/CrossfireX™ switch prompts Rampage V Edition 10’s integrated Aura integrated LEDs to guide the way when creating multi-GPU setups.


Extreme next-gen connectivity: 3x3 802.11ac Wi-Fi, NVMe U.2, M.2, SATA and USB 3.1
