System IO Benchmarks
ixChariot Network Throughput:
The X370 Krait Gaming's storage performance is very strong compared to some of the other motherboards. Network performance is average, as they are using a Realtek NIC instead of Intel or Killer, but you won't notice too much of a difference in real life.
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: Very Good. MSI's audio solution is average, it's not the best, but it's also not bad. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
