E.2.2. Spot Check Testing

Intel suggests you to also perform a spot check of board performance as new silicon or a new Quartus build is released. Once the board has been completely tested, when new silicon or a new Quartus® Prime build becomes available, Intel suggests performing a 1x3 test of the PCIe links and comparing the average results against previous results. Margin results are expected to be better or similar to previous results. If margins degrade, additional testing is recommended.

Ultimately, use your engineering judgment to determine how often spot checking should be done.
