J&W MINIX 890GX-USB3 Mini-ITX (AMD 890GX) Motherboard - Synthetic Tests - Part II

You hear everyone saying "Go Big!". Well, J&W went small instead, but in a very big way with their MINIX line-up.

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.

In HDD performance the MINIX does better than the GIGABYTE 890GPA even when it is overclocked.
