Performance

For performance testing I ran through a mix of standard benchmarks, these aren’t really there to show a big performance gap between any motherboards. But just to make sure everything is running smoothly and to make sure that no boards are overclocking our CPU more than they should be. For comparison, I put the ProArt X570-Creator WiFi alongside our ROG Crosshair VIII Hero WiFi which has been our AM4 test platform for years now. In both 3DMark tests, the two boards performed similarly. The Crosshair board came out a few points ahead in one and the ProArt was ahead in the other. Performance was similar in PCMark 10 and in Passmark Performance test as well. For the in game tests, the Crosshair was a hair faster in Shadow of the Tomb Raider but the ProArt had a similar edge in Ghost Recon.

The real tests were down at the bottom where I took a look at network performance. The ProArt X570-Creator WiFi is upgraded across the board compared to the older Crosshair board here. For wireless, the ProArt X570-Creator WiFi now has 6 GHz support with its WiFi 6E support where older boards and our network itself both only support WiFi6. But even without a network that supports it, the ProArt X570-Creator WiFi improved on the wireless performance. For wired the ProArt X570-Creator WiFi’s slowest NIC is the Intel I225-V which is 2.5G. The Crosshair’s fastest NIC was the Realtek RTL8125 which was also 2.5G. For the second NIC the ProArt X570-Creator WiFi has a full 10G Marvell AQC113CS NIC and in our testing on a 10G network that NIC blows the other four tested out of the water. Even on a 1G network, the ProArt X570-Creator WiFi did come in a hair quicker as well.
