Roundup: entry level Z77 Express motherboards from AsRock, Asus, Gigabyte and MSI
by Guillaume Louel
Published on December 28, 2012

Drive performance

Unlike the mid/high end models, the entry level cards generally make do with the chipset features for drive support. ASRock stands out however with a controller that we tested. The drive performance of the Intel chipset is constant across all models. Note also that the motherboards don’t have eSATA connectors.

Serial ATA 6 Gb/s controllers

We measured the performance of the Intel chipset (in 6 and 3 Gb mode) as well as the performance of the additional ASMedia controller used by ASRock. We used CrystalDiskMark to meaure the sequential and random speeds of a Vertex 3 Max IOPS:



[ Sequential ]  [ Random ]

The ASMedia solution is one of the best alternative drive controllers on the market, particularly for sequential speeds. The Pro4 ports are perfectly usable as a backup solution.
