ASUS Maximus III Extreme (P55 Express) Motherboard - Synthetic Tests - Part II

P55 might be old news, but ASUS has put their engineers to the task of squeezing every ounce of performance out of it with the Maximus III Extreme.

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 and Everest.

HDD performance is right around where we would expect it and at these speeds you are not really going to notice a difference of 2-3MB/s anyway.

Again, HDD speed is where it needs to be.
