System IO Benchmarks

Anvil SATA6G:


Anvil M.2:


DiskBench USB 3.0:


ixChariot Network Throughput:


IO performance is where I expected it to be, it's towards the strong side of IO performance. SATA6G storage performance is solid. M.2 performance isn't the best because this is a M.2 PCI-E 4x drive in a M.2 2x slot.

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: 4. Very Good, clear audio with slight boost from the on-board amplifier. There are 5 ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
