ASRock's Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming-ITX/ac performs as well as most full-sized ATX boards, and it holds its own against other Mini-ITX boards. It does seem that at stock there is light multi-core enhancement. Overall CPU and GPU performance are quite strong. There are no performance pitfalls.

 

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).
