Still salty about the fact that a $400 sound card is pure placebo I see. Some people find the truth simply too hard to accept I guess.
LOL, sorry, it was unnecessary, I just couldn't help myself. I don't know if you have any experience recording and mixing music, but when you are an Engineer, you want a completely Flat Output. You need to make sure that when you are coloring your palette, that there is nothing in your environment that boosts or attenuates any frequencies, this way when you shape the sound, you are not over (or under) compensating for a harmonic that others will not hear. Its for this reason that you require everything to be as flat as humanly possible. This even extends to the room you are mixing in, but especially starts with your equipment, and most especially your DAC, Clock, and Drivers. Even then you are constantly calibrating to make sure your environment isn't off by even a dB at any frequency. You are still always going to have imperfections, but over time you learn mixing an a particular envelope with a particular system you learn what those deficiencies are by listening to your mixes on a range of different systems, and begin to shape your mixes accordingly. This is why so many Engineers do not like changing the equipment they work on, as I mentioned to the member I was originally discussing this with, the On board sound on the Asus is perfectly adequate for most consumers, even for people starting out mixing, if you have a keen ear you can overcome the issues with it, but its a damn good consumer DAC, definitely better then any other On-Board sound I have listened to. But its no where near flat, it has a boost of around 1.5dB in the 200Hz range, and a sharp fall off with a High Q at around 50Hz, on top of that it also once you get past 8KHz it boosts and attenuates the further up the spectrum you go, if you look at it on a spectrum analyzer its almost like a small roller coaster, its only a delta of about 2db, and even though it does add character to whatever you are listening to, its again, just not flat. There is also a high signal to noise ratio, and after you drive your Monitors to over 75dB using the onboard audio you get some nasty crosstalk between channels, so its just not ideal for professional work. I hope that makes sense. Sorry for being a smart ass, I just get annoyed when people like to be d**ks for no reason, but thats no reason for me to act the same way. Hope that helps explain why certain people, especially audio professionals, but even audio enthusiasts get themselves something better.

But it shaves 3 minutes off the crunch time of the cpu tasks compared to the SSE41 app. But faster crunching means the cpu is doing more work in a shorter time, so the energy usage has to go up. = more heat. But I really hammer the cpu with the MBv8_8.22r3712_avx2_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu app. That one spiked the temps to 95°C.
I just chuckle when I read posts that say so and so programs are an unrealistic test because no program runs that way continuously. Ha Ha ha LOL.
Your the man Keith! Still appreciate you getting me hooked back on Ubuntu, its insane the performance difference between Windows on most tasks!

This is my fault for continuing this, I don't want this thread to devolve into petty bickering, so I will just try to ignore d**k comments in the future so we can keep our normal level of decorum. You still want some Cookies my brother? What kind do you want??? LOL!
