Coming from x299 platform noticed some drops in SATA performance for both read and write for small files.
Using RAID or AHCI doesn’t matter and both perform same.
Drive: Samsung 860 Evo 4TB x 4 ( 2 in RAID 0, 2 normal)
ASUS ROG Zenith II Extreme
ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming
ASUS Prime X299-Deluxe
Benchmark (same drive, same file count / space etc.):
On TR platform both motherboards perform same. RAID doesn’t matter (happens same on RAID0 2x SSD drives)
On Zenith all 4 drives are connected to chipset and not via ASMEDIA.
Is it ASUS thing (aka bad mobos) ???
Currently I’m thinking that higher latency on TR platform (70-80 vs 52 on x299) is explanation for those drops on small files.
TR: 3960x, mem 4 x 8 GB @ 3200 cl14 (OCed also to 3600 cl15)
Any feedback from TR owners more then welcome.
