In making a debut to our motherboard section, we have EVGA's P55 FTW overclocking board up on the bench today. Let's see what it can do.

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 speed was not the best on the EVGA P55 FTW. We saw about a 3-4MB/s difference between the P55 FTW and the top board of the group.

Overclocked HDD Performance

 

Our Everest scores are higher than the ones we saw with Sandra, but they are still slower than what we have seen from other P55 boards.
