Access Time And I/O Performance

USB 3.0 To The Front Panel: ASRock Leads The Way
By

The X58 Extreme6’s PCIe bridge appears to add some latency to the mix. Different port locations also affect performance.

Also along the lines of access (and recovery) times are our Input/Output Operations Per Second benchmarks. The P55 chipset appears extremely weak here, which could be a result of its ports connecting to a secondary PCIe 1.1 controller.

While the P55 continues to suffer, remaining solutions are closely matched in our File Server benchmark pattern. The front-panel connector’s design appears perfect.

With the exception of our File Server benchmark, it appears that the shortest pathway to the CPU provides the best overall Iometer performance, but by an insignificant amount.
