USB Test - AIDA64


Version and / or Patch Used: 1.70.1400






USB 2.0 performance is pretty standard, with the numbers looking pretty similar on most of our platforms. USB 3.0 performance random is a little down, but the beginning and end results are pretty similar to our other boards here.



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 shows strong SSD performance that lines up with our other boards, you can see under both AIDA64 and HD Tune Pro that SSD performance is slightly down overall in comparison to our other setups.


We tried changing the SATA connectors, and SATA cables, and rebooted a number of times, but apart from a little bit of fluctuation, the performance was pretty much the same. With that said, we can see that the overall performance of the system was not really affected, as benchmarks like PCMark 8 and MediaEspresso showed strong numbers.
