AVADirect's Avant Garde offers superior performance over many of the other contenders, but it's a bit different than the Raptor Z55 PC which it goes head to head with in almost every benchmark. The Avant Garde's CPU is overclocked to 4.7GHz while the Raptor Z55 is overclocked to 4.8GHz, and that is why it doesn't win in all the CPU benchmarks.

 

The two GTX 1080 Ti Founder Edition GPUs shine brightly in real life gaming scenarios when we increase the resolution to 4K. Otherwise, the games are usually CPU bound at lower resolutions.

The Avant Garde's RAID 0 960 EVOs takes the cake as the fastest in our charts, Intel's DMI is bottlenecking them, and that in itself says something. Network performance is top notch, but I expected as much since I have already reviewed the motherboard used in this PC.
