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 GIGABYTE Z68XP-UD3-iSSD had an average read that was quite comparable with our other Z68 Motherboards. The Average Write was between 30-40MB/s slower than our other Intel Z68 motherboards though it was still a solid performance on 197.9MB/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 Results: The GIGABYTE Z68XP-UD3-iSSD was able to pull out a respectable read speed of 300.4MB/s and a write speed of 219.9MB/s. The performance numbers are just behind our other Intel Z68 systems.
