The motherboard’s SupremeFX audio based on Realtek’s ALC1150 chipset is capable of producing warm, crisp tones and retains a great tonal response across various bit rates. It’s certainly not the best audio solution I’ve encountered and performance could be improved at 16 bit 44KHz. Despite this, when you take the asking price into consideration, the performance is worthy of praise.

On a similar note, the chipset’s maximum latency is sub 90µs which rivals many premium motherboards on the market.
