ASUS P9X79 Pro (Intel X79) Motherboard Review - USB 2.0 and 3.0 Benchmarks

We take the time to check out another of our ASUS X79 boards that we have on hand - the P9X79 Pro which comes in a little cheaper than previous ASUS X79 boards we've looked at.

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 USB performance, we can see that USB 3.0 performance lines up with our other boards just as we'd expect. Looking at USB 2.0 performance, though, we can see a nice boost in performance thanks to the new Turbo technology that ASUS have implemented on the latest line-up of X79 motherboards.
