System IO Benchmarks
ixChariot Network Throughput:
The X370 SLI PLUS has excellent M.2 and SATA performance, but network performance isn't as good as some of the other systems. For some reason with this new platform I see one of two NICs; the Intel i211AT or the Realtek RTL8111E, and oddly enough I haven't seen a motherboard with a Killer NIC. Realtek's solution, who cost effective, isn't as good as Intel's, but the difference will only really be seen in benchmarks.
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: Acceptable. MSI's audio solution is designed to bring motherboard cost down a bit; it's what you would expect from onboard audio in the traditional sense. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
