The B450 TOMAHAWK's SATA, M.2, and networking performance are at appropriate levels.

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: Acceptable. The controller used on this motherboard is not the best compared to others on the market, but at least in this case the benchmark ran, on another B450 motherboard with the same audio controller, the test would fail to run. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
