We used 3DMark‘s ‘Fire Strike Ultra’ benchmark which is designed to be used on high-resolution gaming PCs.

ASRock’s Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming K6+ makes a solid start in our system benchmarks. 3DMark’s Physics test registers a strong lead for the ASRock board over Asus’ competitor, although it looks to be tied to an early software issue for the latter.
Sandra’s CPU arithmetic score is what we would expect and memory bandwidth falls a couple of gigabytes per second behind Asus’ ROG model.
