Testing

 

Methodology

To test the EC03 PCIe card I used our resident USB 3.0 device, the Kingston HyperX Max 3.0 and Sisoft Sandra Lite. For comparison purposes, I also ran the benchmak using the last USB 3.0 card we tested, the Startech USB 3.0.

 

Test Rig(s)

CPU: Q9450 @ 3.2GHZ
Motherboard: Asus P5QL Pro
GPU: Sapphire 5770 1GB
RAM: 4GB Super Talent @ 800MHZ
