System IO Benchmarks
DiskBench USB 3.0:
ixChariot Network Throughput:
IO Performance is excellent, especially SATA and M.2 performance. ASRock has always focused on storage performance, and the Z170 Extreme4 is no exception.
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: Very good audio capabilities, the audio is clear and the highs and lows are pretty evident, almost like a discrete card. There are 5 ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
