System IO Benchmarks


CrystalDiskMark SATA6G:




CrystalDiskMark M.2:





CrystalDiskMark USB 3.0:




ixChariot Network Throughput:




The X150M-PRO ECC performs well in SATA, M.2, and USB 3.0 tests. The M.2 slot is wired x4 PCI-E 3.0 to the PCH, so you should be okay with the latest NVMe x4 PCI-E 3.0 drives. The X150M-PRO ECC uses Intel's workstation class i219LM over the consumer i219V, and the good news is that performance doesn't take a hit.


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: Acceptable. With its ALC892 is not the most impressive audio codec, but overall audio performance is decent for built in. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
