I don’t know about you, but if I couldn’t get online I wouldn’t use my computer half as much as I do. So when I’m testing a motherboard I always run them through Passmark’s advanced network benchmark. The test does a file transfer to another PC in our office that has Passmark setup as a server. In this case we actually run through two different switches. The Gaming M5 performed at what I would consider to be average. For example our X99 testing saw results from 786.4 to 907.6.
