BIOSTAR's multi-core enhancement is not that strong, and when I standardized the settings, it's still not the best performer. The reason is because of the updates for microcode, and the next BIOS update from BIOSTAR (since this one I used is quite old), should bring forth performance improvements.

That being said, is the performance here noticeable? Not at all. In fact, in the only real game benchmarks (Resident Evil 6), it scores better than all the other motherboards, and it keeps up in many of the synthetics.

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).
