With its emergence as the new standard for high-speed portable devices, USB 3.0 performance on a modern motherboard needs to be good to ensure that data transferral bottlenecks aren’t created.
We tested USB 3.0 performance using an ADATA SP300 SSD connected to an Icy Box IB-223StU3 USB 3.0 enclosure. ATTO was the benchmark used.
USB 3.0 ports on the Asus P8Z77-V LK motherboard are equally as capable as those found on the P8Z77-V board – no surprise given the fact that both products use the same Z77 chipset.
Using the USB 3.0 Boost feature which is supported by the Asus P8Z77-V LK motherboard, a healthy increase in our drive’s read speed was obtained.
