The ASRock Fatal1ty X299 Professional Gaming i9 is a solid performer. Recently I have seen some interesting changes to the microcode of the new BIOS versions for the X299 platform, and also applications such as AIDA64 totally changing the way they rank tests such as SP FLOPs and IOPS. It's why the new AIDA FPU results are so much different than older ones, and one reason I am phasing out older results as we move forward.

 

I don't too 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.
