LAN Speed Test

Both motherboards have integrated gigabit LAN adapters. Just for the fun of it, I wanted to see if any one performed better than the other. My entire home is wired with Cat5e which terminates to a patch panel, and then hooks up to a gigabit Netgear switch.

LAN Speed Test Results

Benchmark Results:  The ASUS P5E’s Marvell88E8056 PCIe Gigabit LAN adapter seemed to fall on its face with the 1 MB writes, but it showed its true performance with a larger packet size.  It was definitely a bit slower than the GIGABYTE Z87X-UD4H Intel GbE LAN adapter.
