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 performance testing was completed using a Corsair Force GT 240Gb SATA III 6Gbps SSD.
Benchmark Results: The ASUS F2A85-V Pro and the GIGABYTE F2A85X-UP4 were virtually identical in our SATA III 6Gbps performance testing today. The ASUS F2A85-V Pro was able to hit a sequential read speed of 479.8MB/s and a sequential write speed of 295.5MB/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.
Benchmark Results: Once again there is very little performance difference between our two AMD A85X motherboards today, the ASUS F2A85-V Pro had an average read speed of 360.6MB/s and an average write speed of 335.1MB/s.
