Today we are going to test the VIZO SPEED-UP PCIe USB 3.0 Host Card with the A-DATA N007 USB 3.0 solid state drive that uses an Indilinx Barefoot controller. For comparison we will also test with the GIGABYTE X58A-UD7 motherboard that uses an NEC controller to provide USB 3.0 connectivity. The last set of results is with the A-DATA N007 attached to the SATA II port on the X58A-UD7 motherboard.
ATTO Baseline Performance
Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34
ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.
Right off of the bat we see that the VIZO SPEED-UP USB 3.0 Host Card does not deliver on the claimed 10x USB 2.0 speeds. It looks like our read speeds will be limited to around 141MB/s and our write speeds at 105 MB/s. We will have to see what the A-DATA drive is capable of in other tested configurations, but we already know that it is higher than this from previous testing.
