SuperSpeed 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: The USB 3.0 performance of the Intel DX58S02 X58 motherboard was a little on the lacking side. With an average read of only 104.53MB/s the Intel DX58S02 was the bottom board when it comes to read speeds. The Average write of 109.6MB/s gained some ground in our charts and the Intel DX58S02 is no longer in the bottom spot.
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.
