Disk Drive Controller
The system drive controller is an important part of system performance. In most modern boards your drive controller will run off of the PCI-e bus. The PCI-e bus performance can be affected by poor trace layout as well as many other design choices that show up on different boards.
For testing we use Sisoft's Sandra and Everest.
With the inclusion of SATA 3.0 on the ASUS P7H57D-V EVO, we have added that to our normal testing suite. As there are multiple methods for including this on the motherboard, we may see large differences in performance.
For the ASUS H57D-V EVO we see what we have come to expect from the Intel controllers found in the H5x boards and also see decent performance from the Marvell SATA 3.0 controller.
As a side note, I do find it funny that some 10+ years after the first ATA 100 controllers and drives were introduced, we are finally seeing actual speeds close to 100MB/s on a traditional HDD.
Our Everest testing validates what we saw with Sandra. The ASUS H57D-V EVO is not going to have any issues with SATA-II (or SATA 3.0) drive speeds.
