System IO Benchmarks
ixChariot Network Throughput:
The Z370N WIFI's SATA performance is good, but M.2 sequential read performance is slightly lower than others. WIFI performance is great, and that's mainly because it's using a 2x2 wireless-AC card instead of a 1x1 WIFI card.
Audio RMAA 5.5:
I disable all audio features, set the correct bitrates, and then test the audio with a loopback test.
Sound Judgment by Ear: Very Good, on many mini-ITX motherboards we get some lower testing results because of the proximity of the audio hardware to the rest of the hardware, but the audio was good enough. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
