Intel X79 SATA III 6Gbps Performance
CrystalDiskMark is a small benchmark utility for drives and enables rapid measurement of sequential and random read/write speeds. Note that CDM only supports Native Command Queuing (NCQ) with a queue depth of 32 (as noted) for the last listed benchmark score. This can skew some results in favor of controllers that also do not support NCQ.
The SATA III 6Gbps Testing was done using a Corsair Force GT 240GB Solid State Drive.
Benchmark Results: The GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD7 was a little lower than our other Intel X79 motherboards in terms of read and write performance. The sequential read of 499.9MB/s was 8.7MB/s behind the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme, granted this is only a 1.7% difference. The sequential write speed of 304.6MB/s was within 1.4MB/s of the leading ECS X79R-AX.
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: The GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD7 gave us a solid performance in HD Tune 4.61. The Average Read of 500.8MB/s was 5.3MB/s behind the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme. This isn't far from what we saw in CrystalDiskMark above. The Average Write speed of the GIGABYTE was 466.2MB/s, only 2% behind the ASUS R4E.
