Asus’ Maximus VIII Impact has no trouble keeping pace with ATX competitors in Cinebench and Handbrake tests. The mITX board actually manages to share the performance lead with Gigabyte’s Z170X-Gaming 7 in Cinebench.

7-Zip performance is little below the typical numbers displayed by competitors. This is likely related to the reduced memory capacity and number of DIMMs that the Maximus VIII Impact was forced to use.
