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

GIGABYTE X79S-UP5-Wi-Fi (Intel C606) Motherboard Review
It's been a while since we've looked at an X79 Express based motherboard, but this one from GIGABYTE is a little different since it uses the different Intel C606 chipset.

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.

HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.

Under AIDA64 you can see some strong performance numbers across the board lining up with the other GIGBAYTE options that we've got here.

 

Moving into HD Tune Pro, though, you can see the numbers aren't quite as impressive. This is something we've been seeing for a while now. We get really strong numbers under AIDA64, but when we move to HD Tune Pro, though, the numbers while good, aren't as good as they were under AIDA64.
