ASUS's SABERTOOTH Z170 MARK 1 is using multi-core enhancement, sending all cores to maximum turbo instead of just one. There are other motherboards I have tested that also use this, but you can tell which do and which do not depending on their scores at stock.
Multi-core enhancement doesn't seem to hurt anything like stability; Intel's Turbo profiles are very conservative. When standardizing the settings the motherboard falls into line with competitor products, but it is still faster in some benchmarks than other motherboards. Overall performance is solid.
Some motherboard reviewers 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 (4.5G in graphs). I believe that the system IO benchmarks on the next page are more important and they do tend to differ more from one model to the next.
