After the issues I ran into with the Asus board when testing on our normal switch I was ecstatic when the X99 Classified had no issues at all putting down the numbers when using it. In the end the Asus did perform slightly better, but only when using a different switch. I will take a slight drop in performance for overall consistency any day! EVGA doesn’t bundle any special QoS software like MSI and Asus, they just put two high quality Intel NICs in their board and leave it be. It is right to the point and very filling for a Classified board.

With the LAN hitting right after the Intel and AMD launches I nearly forgot to publish our coverage of the EVGA X99 Classified. Check it out!
