Drive I/O Performance

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.

Result Observations
Not much can really be said for the HDTach or Sisoft Sandra drive performance results, with all motherboard performing almost identical regardless of chipset. Whether or not this is down to the hard disk used not being able to fully stress the I/O of the motherboards, or the nVidia and Intel solutions just being extremely close in performance is something we'll certainly be investigating in the future.

Feels like years I've been waiting for this NDA to drop and its not a disappointment!

Can't wait or somebody to give 790i some stick with a few 9800GTX's when they arrive. Assuming the GTX is as cheap as rumored, that will be a major temptation if it performs, assuming the price tag doesn't send you screamingQuote

As you may have already guessed, I'm really really impressed with the board/chipset.

Up until now I've avoided the nVidia boards like the plague, but I think you're going to be seeing people breaking some OC records on this board.Quote
