ASRock X299E-ITX/ac review: Skylake-X on mini-ITX?!

18 cores on 17 x 17 cm, ASRock makes it possible


Benchmarks (CPU)

We start with a number of benchmarks that mainly measure CPU-performance. In the graphs, a number of boards are ahead because they overclock the processor by default, something that we have been calling an 'aggressive turbo' for years and recently appeared in the news as an enhanced turbo. Especially in the somewhat heavier second pass of the x264-test, we see that the ASRock X299E-ITX/ac performs a bit worse than other X299 motherboards, which is probably due to slight throttling of the power supply.
