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.

Wow; now we see the reason for the HyperPi performance. With the combination of great memory speed and great HDD performance we can hope to see some excellent results in the rest of our testing.

Everest confirms our Sandra findings. This showing could impact future tests like AutoGK, PCMark Vantage and Lightwave unless the CPU ends up being the bottleneck.
