AMD FX Processor (AMD FX-8150 Black Edition) Review vs Intel Core i7-2600K

Platform Benchmarks (SATA, USB 3.0 and PCIe)

Atto disk benchmark allow us to see how a system performs in a set of synthetic tests which ensure repeatable comparisons across a wide range of products.




In these tests we see that the excellent Z68 Fatal1ty Gen 3 from ASRock combines with the i7-2600K to offer two areas where speeds are improved by using the Intel Platform. SATA and PCIe performance, though this doesn't take into account multiple GPU use where AMD would have the edge thanks to their dual 16x architecture. On USB speeds the two platforms offer near identical performance.
