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 Sisoft's Sandra.

The H55 chipset is not meant as a high performance chipset; as such it lacks some of the sustained speed you will find on other chipsets. This does not mean that it is slow, just that you will find other chipsets that can handle data transfers better. Still, when you drop in an SSD like the Intel X-25 you can make up for quite a bit of that as we seek peak speeds that are quite nice and balance out the average speed as well.
