X58 Motherboard Roundup July 2010

X58 Roundup Featuring ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI

SATA 6GB/s / USB 3 Performance

One of the big selling points of newer X58 boards is their ability to support SATA 6GB/s and USB 3.0 through use of third party controllers (Marvell/NEC). To test this feature on each of the boards we connected our Crucial RealSSD C300 to the SATA 3 ports and via a USB 3.0 caddy before measuring performance.

Continuing a similar trend to the other tests in this review we see all of the motherboards perform at near identical levels in these scenarios. Interestingly though it is the ASRock board which offers the best performance on USB 3 and SATA 3, by a very small amount.
