Default USB 3.0 Performance Preview

Currently we have three USB 3.0 equipped motherboards in our possession. The Gigabyte X58A-UD7 that we showed you here earlier this week. We have also taken delivery on a Gigabyte P55A-UD6 motherboard that has USB 3.0. Both of these motherboards are part of Gigabyte’s new "333 Onboard Acceleration" series. As well as having USB 3.0 on board, these two boards also carry the new SATA 3.0 controllers as well. Gigabyte also promotes "3x USB Power Boost" to round out the 333 series, but to be perfectly honest I am unsure as how to test this claim.


The graph you see above is using the Buffalo 1TB external hard drive for both our USB 3.0 and 2.0 connections. All we have done is take the device and switched it between USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports on our motherboard. So this should represent a very good "apples to apples" comparison. Actually it was the only one we could provide given us not being able to easily take the Buffalo drive apart.

In view of the limitations in possibilities of testing, the results are nevertheless quite interesting.

Still, I feel it's early days to draw conclusions and start assembling a new PC based around a "333" mainboard, as the technology will take at least another six months to a year before being fully implemented and the peripheral hardware manufacturers will have converted their stuff.

But like I said: quite interesting.

interesting only if your main goal is to attach remote storage and you're not technically able to install/use eSATA or Gigabyte LAN (iSCSI)

there are no affordable USB sticks that run at USB 2.0 speeds for write operations... so it's better we wait for those to appear
over USB 2.0 they all top out 15-20mb/s
while the tech should allow 30+mb/s

According to my mum, right after she gave birth to me, there appeared a ghostly figure next to her bed that spoke with a gloomy voice: "thyne son shallt haveth one sole purpose in life, and that is to attachet remote storage to his computers. Now doth goeth forth and assembeleth..." Of course, she never mentioned this to anyone but me...

Wow,

MY mom told me the same thing happened to her, only they thought "remote storage" meant a detached garage or a warehouse or something
