The Z270X-Gaming 9 has very strong IO performance. I was surprised to see that the Z270X-Gaming 9's U.2 sequential scores were higher than that of the Z270X-Gaming 7's.

 

Network performance is excellent as well, which isn't a surprise since I have seen the Killer Wireless AC 1535 in action before.

 

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: Excellent. The results are a bit bugged, as we have seen from previous Creative chipsets, but the audio itself was excellent, and I actually thought it sounded a tiny bit better at higher volume levels than the AORUS Z270X-Gaming 7. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
