Question owners of ASUS TUF Z390-PLUS GAMING can you post (Dpc Latency) test ?

i couldn't find DPC Latency tests of this motherboard: "ASUS TUF Z390-PLUS GAMING". I know Asus mobos have high dpc latency, especially these for 500$~ This mobo in particular, has good VRM and is cheap. While ASRock has low dpc latency on mobos like "itc/ac", or "taichi" - which are not cheapest. But i see lately bad ASRock motherboards and a lot of bios bugs. I don't trust ASRock atm. I honestly don't care much about overclocking, you can't overclock today's multicore processors much anyways. But i would like to get to 5ghz on i5 9600KF, for single core performance, which shouldn't be problem on this mobo. I just need find out about DPC Latency. I am very sensitive to it. And i don't want end up with lagged mobo. I currently have 50$ mobo from GB, which has very low dpc latency. I also know these tests are relative, but still useful.

I checked ASUS TUF Z390-PLUS GAMING, it has intel nic, which is good. Realtek is fine without installing drivers. As badly coded drivers are main source of DPC latency. It has crappy RGB, not sure if it matters if you switch that off. No wifi so far as i know, again good.

If someone could do 30 minute latencymon test, while nothing running on background. And all cores included in latmon preferences. With disabled C states and ultimate power performance profile. You shouldn't game while you do these tests, it already simulates load. Or if someone dig up something i would appreciate it. I don't like buying mobo blindly.
