USB 3.0 Performance Testing
HD Tach is a low level hardware benchmark for random access read/write storage devices such as hard drives, removable drives (ZIP/JAZZ), flash devices, and RAID arrays. HD Tach uses custom device drivers and other low level Windows interfaces to bypass as many layers of software as possible and get as close to the physical performance of the device possible.
Testing of the USB3 was done using the SUNBEAMTECH Airbox USB3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure. The drive used was a Crucial Technology RealSSD C300 SSD.
Benchmark Results: Now that we have eliminated the hard drive inside the enclosure as a limiting factor, we start to see a performance difference between our boards. The GIGABYTE P67A-UD4 took the top spots in HD Tach USB 3.0 testing. The Average Read is sitting pretty at 118.77MB/s; that is 2.6% faster than the ASUS P8P67 Deluxe. The Average Write speed was faster than the ASUS P8P67 Deluxe, though only by .03MB/s.
HD Tune Pro 4.01 is an extended version of HD Tune which includes many new features such as write benchmark, secure erasing, AAM setting, folder usage view, disk monitor, command line parameters and file benchmark.
Our testing of the USB 3.0 performance was done using the SUNBEAMTECH Airbox USB3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure. The drive used was a Crucial Technology RealSSD C300 SSD.
Benchmark Results: Once again the GIGABYTE P67A-UD4 was able to excel in the USB 3.0 testing. HD Tune shows the P67A-UD4 having an Average Read speed of 113.33MB/s, that is 4.5% faster than the next board. The Average Write speed is 111.6MB/s which is .33MB/s faster.
