Asus Striker II Extreme 790i DDR3 Motherboard
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.
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.
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.
