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.


SiSoft Sandra




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.






Stock HDD Performance




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.
