System IO Benchmarks
ixChariot Network Throughput:
The X299-Aorus Gaming 9's storage performance in both M.2 and SATA tests are good; there doesn't seem to be an issue, other than 4K reads are a bit lower. I assume there is some power saving mode enabled in the UEFI that makes this happen. Network performance is top notch, that Killer wireless AC card is quite good.
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: Excellent, actually truly excellent when you put on a pair of headphones. GIGABYTE has done a very nice job with the ESS DAC and the amplifications. Although, this design is a big deviation from what we typically get with GIGABYTE (no OP-AMP socket, Realtek over Creative, no physical PCB divide).
There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
