SuperSpeed USB 3.0 on the ASUS P7P55D-E Premium

USB (Universal Serial Bus) is just now beginning to transition from Hi-Speed USB 2.0 to SuperSpeed USB 3.0, which has been a long time coming. SuperSpeed USB 3.0, as it is officially called, is touted as being the next generation in bus interfaces and full backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and 1.1. Read on to see how it performs!

Our friends over at ASUS were kind enough to send us over this joint ASUS/Vantec prototype USB 3.0 hard drive docking station in order for Legit Reviews to bring you some coverage on SuperSpeed USB 3.0 performance on the ASUS P7P55D-E Premium motherboard that supports the technology. This specific enclosure was designed to house a 3.5” SATA hard drive and is onyx black in color. The enclosure looked like nothing more than a slightly modified Vantec NexStar 3 hard drive enclosure to be honest.

Tossed in my personal Seagate XT SATA 6Gbps 2TB drive and re-ran some USB 3.0 tests:

As you can see the scores did improve in some tests and lowered in others.

ATTO Results:
The Seagate 7200.12 500GB drive was showing 135MB/s read and 125MB/s write
The Seagate XT 2TB drive is running 148MB/s read and 122MB/s write
