The Z270 Taichi's M.2 performance can be tuned to improve on the 4K results (driver and so on), but otherwise, it's performing excellently in storage benchmarks. Network performance on the wired side is solid, but wireless AC performance is lower than many other solutions because of the 1x1 controller.

 

Audio RMAA 5.5:

 

I disable all audio features, set the correct bitrates, and then test the audio with a loopback test.
