SATA III 6Gbps 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.
The SATA6 Testing was done using Crucial RealSSD C300 256Gb SATA6 SSD drive.
Benchmark Results: The MSI 990FXA-GD80 didn't do so hot in our SATA III testing. The average read in HD Tach was only 195.07MB/s while the ASRock 890FX Deluxe4 averaged 241.73MB/s. The average write speeds were a much closer margin with only ~12MB/s seperating the two boards.
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.
Benchmark Results: HD Tune tells us a similar story to what we saw above in HD Tach. The ASRock 890FX Deluxe4 was ~37MB/s faster in the Average read than the MSI 990FXA-GD80 and had a ~19MB/s faster average write speed.
