SATA, M.2 and USB Performance


To test the storage performance in our motherboard reviews we use AIDA’s Disk Benchmark utility built into their AIDA64 Engineer Edition software package and run a variety of read and write tests. We run each of the benchmark tests on a SATA III, USB 3.0 and M.2 device. For SATA III testing we use a Patriot WildFire 120GB SATA III SSD, for USB 3.0 testing we use the Kingston Hyper X 64 GB USB 3.0 flash drive and for M.2 testing we use Plextor’s 256GB M.2 M6e SSD. The drives are always formatted before use.

    I have this motherboard. I run Windows 7 Professional x64.
    I do not see any option to team the 2 NICs. I tried the NIC driver on the manufacture’s website and the 7.92.115.2015 (latest once from RealTek). None of these driver help.
    I have a Gigabyte Z87X-UD5H (also have 2 NICs). The teaming option can be found right in the property menu of the NICs.
    No idea why this option is not showing for the BioStar.
    I emailed the biostart US support e-mail for 3 days and haven’t heard anything from them.
    Can any one help with the NIC teaming of this mom-board?
