Asus P7P55D EVO P55 Motherboard - Performance Revealed

Hard Drive Benchmarks

 
HDTach is a free hard disk benchmarking program from SimpliSoftware. This benchmark is not only capable of producing results on hard disk access times but also CPU usage required during disk access. The "Long bench" was run a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a PC. Each of the benchmarks below were run a total of five times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average being calculated from the remaining three.
 
 
 
 
Results Analysis
 
The Evo's hard disk controller is certainly cause for debate but the results above do not show anything of immediate concern. Sadly, I didn't have the means to test the validity of the problems that have been reportedly encountered with the new controller but the results above show that, apart from being a tiny bit slower in the read department, the Marvel controller is working as it should, at least when compared to the ICH10R and 790FX chipsets.

Let's see how the motherboard performs with our multimedia benchmark suite...

Hmmm. Needing some more details on the 6g sata situation as it unfolds.

According to the hdtach in the review, the controller used appears nothing to write home about.

Really nice low power consumption on idle.

8x - 8x won't make some people happy. Couldn't care less about that myself.

An opinion on the VIA HD sound would be interesting.

In all, being the launch of a new socket and all, not much impressing me here.

Roll on stable 6g and USB3.0 imo.

Rumor had it Gigabyte had sorted something out with the marvell and it would appear ASRock are supplying pcie cards for it.

Yeah the PCIe cards are SATA 6G and they use the same controller. The problem is with PATA support so as the PCIe card does notsupport PATA the problem is null and void.

It won't be long before we see full 6G support and I agree, the ommision of USB 3.0 is disappointing. Let's hope the 2nd round of boards have these features fully supported.

Nice review, but would like to know more detail about memory overclocking performance, such as the highest clock or required voltage, instead of only bandwidth testing.
