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 ASUS P8Z68-V Pro had just enough in it to edge out the GIGABYTE P67A-UD7 in our USB 3.0 performance testing. The average read was 118.73MB/s compared to 118.53MB/s while the average write speed of the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro was sitting pretty at 118MB/s compared to the UD7's 115.37MB/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 difference in the average read speeds of our boards today was negligible. Average writes however, showed a significant difference. The ASUS P8Z68 had an average write of 110.83MB/s while the GIGABYTE P67A-UD7 only averaged 97.87MB/s. That's a difference of 13.2%.
