The GIGABYTE X299 Designare EX is well rounded in many aspects. We know that this motherboard is not currently launched and going forward GIGABYTE will tune the BIOS even more for performance, but thus far things are looking good. We see some odd inconsistency in our 3DMark testing, but Resident Evil shows things are okay. At this point, and as we go further, we won't see too much deviation in the performance of the CPU, memory, or GPU. I personally 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.
