PassMark's Performance Test v6.1 offers an extensive collection of tests that can be used to analyze the performance of most system components. The whole suite was executed at once and a few composite scores were recorded in order to provide an overview of system performance. In addition to "Marks" for CPU, Disk, Memory, and 3D Graphics, the overall PassMark Rating is shown in the chart below. Higher numbers are better for these unitless values.
The two boards put up similar numbers again, with each winning at various individual tests. The overall victory goes to the GF8200A, as its PassMark Rating was a mere 10.5 higher.
HD Tune is a fairly simple test that analyzes the performance of a hard drive in terms of burst rate (MB/s), average transfer rate (MB/s), access time (ms), and CPU utilization (%). Higher is better for the burst rate and average transfer rate, while lower is better for access time and CPU utilization.
This Maxtor drive doesn't put up burst speeds like I would expect for SATA 3Gbps, but it does do slightly better on the GF8200A. As a matter of fact, the GF8200A is where three out of four top results were achieved.
