The GIGABYTE X299 AORUS Gaming 3, X299 Taichi, and MSI's Gaming M7 are using a new microcode, and it did have a slight impact on performance. The other motherboards in the charts will also show the same performance if their UEFIs are updated. Overall, the Gaming 3 has solid all-around performance without any issues or remarkable performance feats.

 

I don't put 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.
