I run the CPU benchmarks to make sure there are no glaring issues between the different boards when running the same processor. We check the memory streaming performance to gauge how mature or performance oriented the BIOS is. Finally we take a look at the file system results from both the native SATA 6G controller and the native USB 3.0 unit.
The results are pretty similar between the two boards, and this is a good thing. The Asus board is a little faster in terms of main memory, but the Gigabyte board is a bit faster when it comes to the file tests on the SATA 6G controller. With the built-in USB controller of the A85X we see the two boards exchanging blows.
