Network Interface Tests
Our network tests use the ntttcp application distributed by Microsoft for testing network controller’s efficiency. The program creates a number of threads from a server machine to spit data at the test machine at up to Gigabit speeds. Both maximum throughput and CPU utilization are tested.
Network Interface Test — Max Throughput
Network Interface Test — CPU Utilization
The Abit AN8 32X’s network performance is pretty good heer, coming in at the top level of Gigabit NIC’s we have tested thus far. Even the CPU utilization is impressive and takes the top spot at under 20%.
