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 — CPU Utilization

The single Gigabit Ethernet connection on the Gigabyte 965P-DS3 is just as fast as any other we have tested, using the PCI Express bus on the motherboard for the data connection.  CPU utilization is a bit high, but not much more than the P5B Deluxe from Asus.
