GIGABYTE's Z170X-Gaming 6 is not using multi-core enhancement so stock performance will be lower than that of many other motherboards. The motherboard isn't going to be tuned as much as an overclocking motherboard, but overall performance was good when I standardized the CPU, cache, and memory frequencies.

 

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).
