MSI's multi-core enhancement was disabled by default in the BIOS version I used, so at stock, performance results are a bit lower since MSI is abiding by Intel specifications. When I even out the settings and load my standardized overclocked profile we see the scores even out. Since the motherboard doesn't use much switching at all, performance numbers are quite strong all around.

 

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 (4.8G in graphs).
