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 used SiSoft's Sandra.

The HDD controller on all of the platforms is identical. Therefore we see almost identical results across the board.
