Although the AMD 970 does not have the same performance as Intel's chipsets, you will find no real-world impact from its lower performance in benchmarks. Since the motherboard uses an Intel NIC, network performance was just as good as the Intel systems I tested.

Audio RMAA 5.5:

I disable all audio features, set the correct bitrates, and then test the audio with a loopback test.
