Time Spy being a DirectX 12 benchmark has been interesting as it shows scaling which is repeatable and shows the ASUS board consistently on top of the CPU score while the graphics portion seems to go to Gigabyte with the higher Ring bus. but crank it up to 4K with Time Spy Extreme and suddenly teh tables turn and the Maximus XI Extreme pulls ahead.

  1. I seem to be having a bit of a situation with this board and I thought you might be able to help. It would seem that somewhere I’m not sure if it’s in the Bios or if it’s on the board that for an m.2 slot there’s a switch between usb and pcie. Currently mine is at usb and I would like to change it pcie.

    Thanks if you can help.

    Also I was wondering if I upgrade the BIOS does it change all the settings back to default?

    • Normally I would save a BIOS profile before flashing and set it to defaults to relieve the variable which may cause a bad flash.

      Also, there is no USB signal at all going to an M.2 slot, can you please further explain what you are referring to?
