The Z270X-GAMING SOC's storage performance for random reads and writes isn't exactly where it should be, but that could because of the overclocking BIOS I used (BIOS from the website should perform better). Networking performance is where it should be.

 

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. GIGABYTE's implementation of the ALC1220 is decent. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
