Round-Up: Four Z68 Motherboards From $220 To $280

Benchmark Results: Just Cause 2 And Metro 2033

Asus also rocks Just Cause 2, but only at lower resolutions where the CPU and RAM are a larger part of the performance equation. Again, if you want the explanation behind this, check the bottom of the previous page. In essence, with more cores active, Asus' board is still running at the Core i7's peak Turbo Boost ratio.

Metro 2033 is GPU-bottlenecked to a greater degree than Just Cause 2, diminishing Asus’ lead with its auto-rule engaged.
