I/O performance is where I expected it to be with an Intel NIC and 4x of PCI-E bandwidth for the M.2 slot. Overall, performance is quite good.

 

Audio RMAA 5.5:

 

I disabled all audio features, set the correct bitrates, and then test the audio with a loopback test.

There are five ratings for the audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent

 

Judging by ear, the sound is very good.
