Although the AMD 970 does not have the same performance as Intel's chipsets, you will find no real-world impact from its lower performance in benchmarks. Since the motherboard uses an Intel NIC, network performance was just as good as the Intel systems I tested.

 

Audio RMAA 5.5:

 

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

Sound Judgment by Ear: Audio performance was "very good". There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
