M.2 PCIe Performance
We test M.2 PCIe performance using an Aorus PCIe Gen 4 2TB SSD. This SSD uses a Phison-based PCIe Gen 4 controller.
Our 2TB PCIe Gen 4 Aorus SSD peaked at just below 5GBps in CrystalDiskMark. Our temperature recording registered a peak drive reading of 62°C which shows that Gigabyte’s well-built coolers are doing a stellar job.
We test USB 3.2 performance using a PCIe NVMe SSD connected to a Sabrent USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) Type-A/Type-C M.2 enclosure.
USB performance is where we would expect it to be. 10Gbps USB 3.2 Gen 2 showed transfer rates close to the 1GBps region in our testing.
SATA 6Gbps Performance
For SATA 6Gbps testing we use a Crucial MX300 750GB SSD.
No major cause for concern with the SATA 6Gbps speeds we observed from our well-used Crucial SSD.
Rightmark Audio Analyser is a freeware benchmarking utility designed to objectively test the performance characteristics of audio solutions. We setup a line-in line-out loop and execute the record/playback test before generating the results report you see below. A sampling mode of 24-bit, 192 kHz was tested.
Rightmark Audio Analyser rates the X570 Aorus Master’s audio system as Very Good overall. Frequency response and stereo crosstalk are particular strengths.
