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.

The A88GM Deluxe seems to do pretty good in terms of HDD performance, too. So far things are looking good for the basics.

Overclocked HDD Performance

 

Everest confirms our Sandra findings. We could see some excellent performance in our more general testing.
