Performance

I’ve mentioned it in every review I’ve ever written but I will say it again in case this is your first time. Performance testing for motherboards is mostly about checking to make sure there aren’t any big variations. Boards these days have just about everything combined on the chipset so there isn’t much room for boards to perform better or worse beyond the normal variations in tests. But I did include the test results below to show that the X299 Micro did perform well and it does give you an idea of what kind of performance to expect if you are running a 7900X and a 1080Ti.

That said the network test is one of the rare tests that can differ depending on what NIC they went with. Antenna types also make a difference in the Wireless results as well. The Intel I219v3 that EVGA went with is standard for the X299 boards though so the performance there was as expected (really good). Now the wireless performance, on the other hand, ended up being on the low end. I actually even toyed around with the antenna locations a little because they were flopping around loose, not attached to a rear I/O but this was as good as I could get. In fact, most of my tests were lower. I don’t know if it is the antenna designs or the user installed configuration but you might want to look at other antennas if you pick up this board.
