ASUS's Maximus VIII Extreme looks like it is using multi-core enhancement because stock scores are quite a bit ahead of some other motherboards. After the frequencies and voltages are standardized scores even out and the motherboard does seem to be quite strong in certain benchmarks.

 

Some motherboard reviews put a lot of weight into motherboard CPU, memory, and GPU benchmarks, but for me CPU, memory, and GPU benchmarks on motherboards should be more about finding anomalies, and I do that at standard settings (4.5G in graphs).
