ASUS Rampage V Extreme Motherboard Review – Intel X99
Intel X99 SATA III 6Gbps Performance Testing
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 Neutron 240Gb SSD.
Benchmark Results: The ASUS Rampage V Extreme was able to hit 511.6MB/s sequential read and 439.5MB/s sequential write. The read is a little lower than I would have liked to see considering the X99A was able to hit 532.1MB/s, but the write is pretty close to where it should be.
HD Tune Pro 5.50 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.
