What was odd was the USB 3. With UASP enabled we got a slight performance increase over the "standard" mode.

In both tests USB 2. The RAID 0 configuration also provided solid numbers but feel a little short in terms of raw bandwidth.

The performance deltas for all remaining configurations and controllers was about what we had anticipated. For whatever reason the USB 3. Aside from the afore mentioned theory on this I have no idea how this could be the case. This was a repeatable test, but as always your mileage may vary.


For the testing, a MB file test was used with the default packet configuration for the application. The test was run three times with the middle result chosen. Results were captured for the low, medium and high transfer rates. The control panel used all the default settings save for the AdHoc 11N setting which was enabled on both systems.


The Sabertooth Z Mark 1 offers two options for wired network connectivity. This is the standard iv controller. I seriously dislike it when manufacturers provide two different controllers.

Not only does this offend my OCD nature but it prevents the controllers from being ASUS SABERTOOTH Z170 MARK 1 ASMedia SATA together. In the download or read test the Intel controller managed a transfer rate of The maximum transfer rate for the upload test was In the read test the maximum transfer rate achieved was In the write test CPU usage was spiking all over the place. I have no idea what the cause of this was but it happened frequently as you can see in the graphs. In the read or download test it exceeded the performance of the Intel controller by quite a bit achieving a transfer rate of The minimum transfer rates were close to the Intel controller on the write test at So when the Realtek controller is faster it comes at the cost of CPU cycles.

Benchmark Test Systems The following system configurations were used for the Sandra memory benchmark graph, as well as all graphs listed under the Application and Gaming Benchmarks sections: Please note that we have updated our system tests to fully use Windows 10 bit. This of course makes all our "old" Windows 7 value non-comparable.

If you are then keep reading. To start with, some subtle design changes and the usual bulky but unique armour make this quite possibly the best-looking Sabertooth yet.

Of course, the armour can be removed - it does add to the aesthetics, but ASUS SABERTOOTH Z170 MARK 1 ASMedia SATA always we do question its usefulness, especially as it not only makes installing CPU coolers a bit more difficult the top left section of armour only gives you a very narrow space between it and the CPU socketand it also leaves us wondering whether the board would run cooler without it anyway. Click to enlarge Tat or a genuine feature - the jury's out on that one, but a possible candidate for the tat theory is that the latest board includes airflow vents.

These in themselves aren't the issue; it's the fact they can ASUS SABERTOOTH Z170 MARK 1 ASMedia SATA open or closed. Why would you want to close them and restrict airflow? Part of the reason is that it may direct airflow to the south of the board, or at least this is what's meant to happen with the second of the two included small fans, but even here Asus's claims that they help cool the M. The slot is raised into a plastic shroud and there's next to no ventilation.

If you want to paint the armour and the board then you can pretty much completely colour-code your Sabertooth quite easily.
