GIGABYTE X79S-UP5-Wi-Fi (Intel C606) Motherboard Review - USB 2.0 and 3.0 Benchmarks

GIGABYTE X79S-UP5-Wi-Fi (Intel C606) Motherboard Review

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.

In a fairly typical setup here you can see our USB 2.0 numbers line up as you'd expect with other boards that don't make use of the ASRock XFast technology. Moving into the USB 3.0 numbers you can see all our boards line up very close to each other, also just as you'd expect.
