ASUS Z8NA-D6C (Intel 5500) Motherboard - Synthetic Tests - Part II

With so many single socket motherboards floating around, we thought we would try a little dual CPU fun this time around.

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 drive performance here is bad, but could be due to the drivers we ended up having to use.

 

Everest

Stock HDD Performance

 

Again, Everest shows us more details than Sandra but still indicates that the Z8NA-D6C could have some drive performance issues.
