Gaming Performance Benchmark Results: In each of the games we tested, the ASUS Maximus VIII Extreme edged out a little more performance than the other Z170 motherboards.  While the difference in performance across each of the Z170 motherboards is minimal, anything that gives an edge in gaming is highly sought after.

    Gigabyte ONLY that Dual Bios has save me many times they do Pay for themselves. NEVER had one that didn’t start up the Very First time. I have a couple that are over 10 years.

      ??? ASUS has dual BIOS with a backup of your original setup before installing the update. Plus there is always a BIOS factory reset. Plus EZflash which grabs the Bios from your hard drive. plus Flashback plus notes, plus… well you get the idea.
