ASUS's Z170-A has multi-core enhancement enabled, and it does help it at standard settings since it is running a bit faster than some other boards. However, motherboard performance is still very strong compared to other boards, even when the speeds are standardized, especially in CPU bound benchmarks.
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 (4.5G in graphs).
