When it comes to M.2 and wired networking performance, the Z170N-WIFI performs at the top of its class, but WIFI performance isn't as strong as some low-powered Broadcom controllers.

 

Audio RMAA 5.5:

 

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