USB Test - AIDA64
Version and / or Patch Used: 1.70.1400
Looking above, you can see that our USB 2.0 performance lines up with our other setups. As for USB 3.0 performance, you can see that it's a little down. This doesn't come as a huge surprise since we're running off of the ASMedia controller here instead of the Intel one because it doesn't have any ports on the rear I/O panel.
SSD Test - AIDA64
Version and / or Patch Used: v4.30.2900
SSD Test - PCMark 8
Version and / or Patch Used: 2.0.191
SSD Test - HD Tune Pro
Version and / or Patch Used: 5.50
While PCMark 8 sees the MSI Z97 GAMING 9 AC line up with the other setups when it comes to SSD testing, AIDA64 sees the MSI offering sitting back slightly, and the same can be seen under HD Tune Pro. As always, we did run the HD Tune Pro benchmark a couple of times, and outside of a little fluctuation, the numbers continued to be similar.
