Asus ROG Maximus VI Gene Testing:
Crystal Disk Mark 3.0: Crystal Disk Mark is a hard drive benchmark designed to measure the read and write speeds of drives by using 4K blocks, 512K blocks, and sequential data. For the test, we chose the 1000MB option.
ATTO 2.47: will be used to measure USB 3.0 performance using an SSD attached to an external USB 3.0 drive dock.
Disk drive performance is similar between the MVIG and Z87M Gaming in the Crystal Disk Mark tests, with the Maximus VI Gene shining in the 4K performance tests. USB 3.0 data throughput on the Maximus VI Gene is greatly improved by enabling ASUS USB 3.0 Boost technology. In this test the throughput from the external drive housing is significantly higher than the competitors' designs.
