I have decided to test motherboard performance based upon a standardized 4GHz profile for the new X99 refresh motherboards. The base frequency of the 6950X is 3GHz, but since Intel's Turbo profile allows for a single core to hit 4GHz, some motherboards will take any number (sometimes all) of the cores to 4GHz at stock settings, and this creates a huge performance disparity at stock. In all these tests I ran the CPU at 4GHz on all cores, the cache at 3.5GHz, and memory at 2666MHz with timings 16-18-18-36 T2, and allowed the motherboard to set the rest of the timings itself.

 

We can see that the STRIX X99 GAMING is very strong in GPU, gaming, and memory benchmarks. It is good to see that most of the X99 motherboards score roughly the same in benchmarks because that indicates that none I have encountered so far have any major BIOS performance issues.
