CPU, Memory, and System Benchmarks
3DMark: Fire Strike
3DMark: Cloud Gate
MSI's performance with the X299 XPOWER GAMING AC is well-rounded. Not only does the board use the new microcode that supports Intel's HCC 18Core CPU, but it also seems to have had its memory returned at default to favor latency over bandwidth as we can see in AIDA64 memory and ScienceMark memory results (Science Mark has it in the lead while AIDA doesn't). I should also mention that once you enable XMP that difference should become null.
AIDA64 FLOPS performance is due to updates in the software itself. I do not put too much credence into benchmarking the CPU or GPU to see how well the motherboard does, as the difference is usually within the margin of error. These tests are to make sure performance is not below that margin, or to see what is going on if it's above.
