System IO Benchmarks


CrystalDiskMark SATA6G:




CrystalDiskMark M.2:





ixChariot Network Throughput:




The Crosshair VI Hero's SATA performance was excellent. The Hero's M.2 performance was the oddball, it's sequential read was a bit low, but its 4K writes top the charts. It seems that vendors are still getting their stuff together in this regards, or it could be the distance that the M.2 slot is from the CPU since the CPU is what provides the bandwidth. Network performance was solid.


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. ASUS's ALC1220 implementation is excellent and sounds awesome. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
