ASRock's performance at stock and when standardized is a bit surprising. In some benchmarks, it totally outguns the rest of the competition. ASRock asked that I update the UEFI on the motherboard to their latest, and it seems that they have brought some performance enhancements to the table. For that reason, I am starting to cycle out some of the original motherboard numbers, since it is impractical to retest all motherboards in the charts for each review because of microcode enhancements.

 

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 (4.8G in graphs).
