ASUS Maximus II Formula P45 Motherboard
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.
As you can see, the results are pretty even across the board, which you would expect as all boards make use of Intel' ICH10R Southbridge. The Maximus II does, however, appear to have a slight edge, being half a second quicker on the random access test and also having a higher burst and read speed.
Please note that Asus 'Speeding' Utility was not used throughout this testing period in the interests of equality.
