ASRock X470 Taichi Ultimate: Just Add 10GbE?


Just wondering why you would include the 'average 8700k configuration' in the overclocking results for an article about an AM4 platform? Why not include a result on a B350 AM4 board? That way you could compare the value of AMD budget systems vs stepping up to a more expensive board for a Ryzen build.


Former Staff
Simply including the X470 Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi added nearly three days to the test, and adding another AM4 board would have delayed the review by that much again. We did test more AM4 boards for the second, third, and fourth review, but those reviews haven't been published yet.
