Supermicro's C7Z170-OCE seems to be utilizing multi-core enhancement, which is common these days. CPU performance is decent, and memory bandwidth performance keeps up with other brands. I expected the GPU results to be on the low side because of the PEX8747 since it adds in some latency, and for single GPU performance there is a slight dip (you should see better results with more than one GPU). PCMark scores were quite good because of the good storage allotment and dual NICs.

 

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).
