GIGABYTE's Z170N-WIFI seems to be utilizing multi-core enhancement, pushing all cores to maximum Turbo multiplier at the same time. It also performs quite well in CINEBENCH, memory, and PCMark. Overall, it is a well-rounded motherboard. 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).
