HDD Tests

To test chipset HDD performance, we're using a PATA hard drive. Some of the boards we have use external SATA controllers, which is not related to chipset performance.

First up, average read and write speeds:

In terms of average access speed, the SiS 755 powered Foxconn board is right in the middle of the pack, I would say. How about Random Access Timing?

Once again, all boards perform about the same. If anything, the 755 is very slightly ahead here. Now we need to find out how the CPU acts when the drives are being accessed:

This time, the 755 pulls ahead of both the other chipsets! By quite a margin at that.
