The GIGABYTE X299 Aorus Gaming 9 is a very well rounded motherboard. In CPU, memory, and GPU performance areas the motherboard is quite strong. We are on a very recent version of the UEFI, so the motherboard seems to have all the proper microcode updates. At this point, and as we go further, we won't see too much deviation in the performance of the CPU, memory, or GPU.

I don't take much too much credence into benchmarking the CPU or GPU to see how well the motherboard does, as the difference is almost always within the margin of error. These tests are to make sure performance isn't below that margin, or to see what's going on if it's above.
