USB 2.0 performance is pretty standard, but you can see USB 3.0 performance manages to sneak out ahead of the other X99 setups when it comes to both the End and Random read results.

SSD performance on the MSI X99S GAMING 9 AC is very strong. While PCMark 8 shows performance between all setups is pretty close, we can see under HD Tune Pro and AIDA64 the numbers are extremely solid, coming out ahead when compared to our other X99 setups.
