Moving from 3D rendering to H265 encoding and the WS carries on being fine, but nothing to shout from the rooftops about. Very middle of the road.

This is an excellent and detailed review. I have a theory that I wanted to run by you. Several times you stated that the performance of this board, although all 390 chipsets perform well, is steadily less than the top boards in it's class. I wonder if this is because the tests are not optimized for this particular board.

By that I mean, this workstation grade board contains a PLX chip to allow dual graphics cards to run in SLI at 16x. Many of the "gamer grade" boards do not have this. It would make sense that the PLX chip would actually create some small performance hit when only running with one video card, but would really shine when running with two.

I have personally seen the difference a PLX chip can make several years ago when comparing some i7 3770K's with dual GTX295 graphics cards. The workstation grade board resoundingly trounced the "gamer" board.

I would love to see if the same still holds true... especially since I just bought said motherboard, specifically getting it for the purpose of running dual GPU's on it eventually.Quote
