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
Networking performance on the Gigabit Ethernet connections provided by the NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI chipset is very good, as the throughput is right on track with other solutions and the CPU utilization is under 20%.
