Performance - X670E - WIFI 6E & Multi Gig Ethernet LAN/WAN

Performance - Multi Gig Ethernet LAN 

Faster Ethernet is becoming more popular in order to improve performance. In the future years, we'll gradually move away from 1 Gigabit connections towards 10 Gigabit connections, with 2.5 and 5 Gbps connections also being made accessible as interim jack. For testing purposes, we have invested in a 10 Gigabit network infrastructure. We begin with a Gigabit uplink and then connect to the 2.5, 5 or 10 Gbps networks in order to scientifically analyze the throughput of the network.

The screenshot denotes Ryzen 9 5950X, PassMark works with a client/server configuration, the screenshots have been taken at server side (5950X, but these are indeed the 7950X measurements).


Above the 2.5 GigE LAN connection, we ran the test several times and as you can see performance is flakey on the Taichi and likely needs a BIOS/Driver update.

Performance Wireless 802.11ax (WIFI6)

For our tests, we emulate what you would get performance-wise inside a house with a multi-level concrete ground and 1st floor as well as a 5-meter test separated by walls. We test Single-band 2.4 GHz and single-band 5 GHz. The router (host) is positioned at ground level and we test with a client (laptop) in several stages.


Performance Wireless 802.11ax WIFI6E

Most enthusiast-class motherboards these days have integrated Wi-Fi, and there are so many standards. One of the more interesting ones is Wireless AC AKA 802.11ac (WIFI5) and as of recent 802.11ax (WIFI6). Motherboards that have such a unit will now be tested here at Wireless AX draft 802.11ax technology was developed to optimize video streaming experiences. Providing Gigabit Wi-Fi speeds allows content to download faster and large video or music files to sync more quickly. An increasing number of Wi-Fi devices in the home leads to greater internet consumption.

Wi-Fi 6E is an extension of the Wi-Fi 6 standard or 802.11ax that is now supported on most motherboards also. The E stands for Extended and the main feat of the expansion is the addition of support for the 6GHz band, which runs from 5925MHz to 7125MHz. Compatibility with older Wi-Fi standards will remain, and Wi-Fi 6E will thus have three bands: 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz. Below the AX 2.4 and 5 GHz, single-link connection.
