ASRock has an option in their UEFI called multi-core enhancement which overrides Intel's standard Turbo procedures in favor of that of the manufacturer, it is enabled in these benchmark tests. Some motherboard reviewers put a lot of weight into motherboard benchmarks, but for me benchmarks on motherboards should be more about finding anomalies and I do that at standard settings (4G in graphs).

Looking at the 4G results, ASRock has tuned the motherboard to perform well across the board, on average it is a pretty good motherboard; not the fastest, but definitely not the slowest.
