IO performance is excellent, especially the M.2 and USB 3.0 performance. Network performance with either wired NIC is at the top, but the wireless AC performance is the best. This isn't the first wireless AC device I have tested, but it is so far the fastest.

 

Audio RMAA 5.5:

 

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