System IO Benchmarks


Anvil SATA6G:




Anvil M.2:




Diskbench USB 3.0:




ixChariot Network Throughput:




The M.2 performance isn't the fastest I have seen, but that makes sense since the M.2 slot on the X99-UD4 is 2x PCI-E 2.0. SATA and USB performance fall within acceptable ranges.


Network performance is what you would expect from an integrated Intel NIC and Intel PHY, the main advantage of the 218v is its power savings.



Audio RMAA 5.5:


I disable all audio features set the correct bitrates and then test the audio with a loopback test.




Sound Judgment by Ear: Very Good.


There are 5 ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
