The STRIX Z270I Gaming's stock performance reveals multi-core enhancement is disabled by default and its stock performance is a bit lower in some situations than other motherboards. It could be because the motherboard is very small, so ASUS isn't giving it the high-performance increases at default. However, we see its performance numbers soar to match or do better than other motherboards when I standardize settings.

 

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).
