Performance

As I’ve mentioned many times before, performance testing is mostly jst a formality. There aren’t performance differences between similar motherboards at stock speeds. Its really all about features, overclocking, and software. That said I do un each board through a series of tests to make sure there are no irregularities and to see if the board does any auto overclocking. I also have our AB350 Gaming 3 results in here as well, but they aren’t a direct comparison as that board wouldn’t let me set the memory clock speeds to match the 2666 MHz that I tested the MSI with. Anyhow, ignoring the higher numbers due to the memory overclock on the AB350, the MSI Titanium performed as expected when paired with the RX480. The 1800X and the RX480 aren’t really the perfect match, but I wanted to stick with AMD for testing this time around. Now in network testing, the MSI really did blow the AB350 out of the water, the Intel I211AT performed much better than the Realtek NIC in that board, showing that a quality network card does make a big difference.
