ASRock M3A785GXH/128M Motherboard - Mainstream 785G Tested - Synthetic Tests - Part II

Our first AMD 785G chipset board was Micro-ATX and now we are starting to see mainstream ATX boards - ASRock has its latest instalment for us.

Disk Drive Controller

 

The system drive controller is an important part of system performance. In most modern boards your drive controller will run off of the PCI-e bus. The PCI-e bus performance can be affected by poor trace layout as well as many other design choices that show up on different boards.

 

For testing we use both Everest and SiSoft's Sandra.

ATI's controller is quite good; both boards come out just about even in both tests. Unlike what we saw on our ASRock X58 board tests, overclocking didn't help out the Hard Disk as these are fully locked on the ATI based SB's.
