With the modern SATA and USB 3.0 controllers we started adding SSD performance numbers measured on such interfaces (when applicable). Putting these in nicely styled charts would be better, but with technology so new we just do not have anything out there yet to compare to, so here are some raw peak performance numbers. We use an A-DATA N002 Solid State Drive which has both a both SATA2 and USB 3.0 port.
Above, you can see a N002 series A-DATA Solid State Drive running over the USB 3.0 controller on this motherboard. The implementation works well. Obviously the N002 write performance is limited at roughly 200 MB/sec.
We recently got asked if we could show SATA3 AHCI performance with a SATA3 SSD as well. We can certainly do that, however after each run the SSD results might differ a little as NAND cells are written, so the performance you see below is a SATA3 SSD performance indication.
Below, a blazingly Corsair Neutron GTX based SSD connected to the SATA3 (6G) Intel controller. AHCI mode is enabled in the BIOS, especially with SSDs that helps a little on peak performance. The SATA3 controller is performing really well.
AMD A10 6790 review We review the AMD A10 6790 APU processor, the little brother of the 6800K and the big brother of the 6700 just became available in the stores. With performance close to the 6800 this might be the budg...
AMD A10 6700 review We review the 100 EUR AMD A10 6700 APU processor, the little brother of the 6800K we just reviewed a little while ago. Based on Piledriver architecture this processor slash graphics hybrid symbiosis called APU.
AMD A10 6800K review We review the 125 EUR AMD A10 6800K APU processor. Based on Piledriver architecture this processor slash graphics hybrid symbiosis called APU remains hard to beat in terms of features performance.
AMD A10 5700 review We review the AMD A10 5700 APU processor. Based on the APU architecture and building on the strengths of the Llano design, the 2012 AMD A-Series platform has been updated to meet and exceed the increasing demands of today’s consumers.
