ASUS M5A99X EVO (AMD 990X) Motherboard Review - Storage Benchmarks

As great as the Crosshair V Formula is, if you want to get in on the 990 action for a little less, the M5A99X EVO from ASUS could be the board for you.

Replacing Everest in our labs is AIDA64. This new testing suite is from the core development team from Lavalys and continues that tradition. The guys have thrown in better support for multithreaded CPUs as well as full 64 bit support. We use this to test memory and HDDs for now, but may find ourselves opening this up to other areas of the motherboard.

Looking at our USB 2.0 performance, you can see again the board is strong and performs in line with the more expensive Crosshair V Formula. Looking at the performance of our SSD, it's a little lower than the Crosshair V Formula, but ahead of the M5A89TD Pro and the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 which uses IDE mode by default instead of AHCI.
