Crystal DiskMark is a simple hard disk benchmarking application that can perform sequential or random read/write tests on a selected drive. You can select the number of read/write operations as well as the size of the data sample. The test was run using the 1000MB files option for a full 5 passes. The first two charts below show the Sequential Read and Write portion of the benchmark. As you can see the numbers are pretty close so we're gonna have to call it a tie.
The next portion of the benchmark reads and writes random blocks of data in 512 kilobyte blocks on the drive. Based on our data, the ASUS board is the winner here by a whopping 24% and 8% respectively.
Lastly, we have the 4k block read and write tests. Here the difference is an astounding 37% and 14% respectively. I guess we may have found the AT310NT-I Deluxe's strong point - disk performance.
