MSI Z87 MPOWER Max 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.
Internal SATA performance shows the MPOWER MAX delivering the highest throughput in the read testing and comparable performance in the write testing. The USB 3.0 testing shows that without the means to improve performance any higher, the MPOWER MAX delivers on the high side for read performance of the non boosted boards and on the lower end of the spectrum when it comes to write performance.
