Performance

So, for the most part, performance testing is just about testing to make sure there aren’t any glaring differences, the performance differences you will see in motherboards can be found in things like network cards and other add-ons as well as in overclocking. So for performance testing, I did run through a list of benchmarks with the Crosshair VI Hero and I have left our previous AM4 results in here, they don’t directly compare. Especially the AB350 that wouldn’t let me set the same memory clock speed as the others.

That said the Crosshair did perform well in all of our tests when paired up with the RX480 and the R7 1800X. This included overall benchmarks like PCMark and Passmarks Performance Test 9 and 3DMark. In game performance was also in line with what I saw on the other boards as well. To test out the Intel I211-AT I used the advanced network test in Passmark’s Performance Test. The average transfer speed was great, coming in just slightly ahead of the MSI with the same NIC and the AB350 with its Realtek NIC was way behind the others showing a quality NIC can give you more consistent performance.
