Photoshop clearly illustrates the confusing performance we had experienced with the X58 Extreme3's SATA 6Gb/s controller disabled. The same board perks up to "normal" performance levels with both add-in controllers enabled.
Asus falls slightly behind the 31-second norm when rendering a 3ds Max frame.
We find identical performance in AVG and a virtual 4-way-tie in both file-compression benchmarks.
