The X399 Taichi's performance is interesting, and at this point, BIOS updates with new microcodes really affect performance. For some reason, in synthetic GPU benchmarks, the motherboard doesn't do that great (a very small margin though), but it does great in real life gaming benchmarks. I expect differences like that to even out as we move towards more consistent microcode updates in AMD's AGESA code for this platform.

As of now, the motherboard's performance is solid, and there isn't anything to worry about or get excited over.
