The Maximus IX Formula is also extremely strong in storage and networking performance benchmark. Wireless AC performance is solid while the Intel NIC performs as expected.

 

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: Excellent. Using the new Realtek ALC1220 and other audio hardware such as a Sabre DAC, the audio output is better than a standard ALC1220 implementation and sounds great. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
