Summary: There is also more test results from
three motherboard on OpenBenchmarking.org
, but the results are not surprising.
Aside from the disk benchmarks where the ASRock H61 and Z68 motherboards did better
than Intel's reference H67 motherboard, even though it was the same OS stack and
SATA SSD, the rest of the results were right in-line with the other motherboards.
Summary: When reviewing a motherboard like the H61M/U3S3 from ASRock the results of the testing/benchmarks are important but realistically the features/value of the board is one of the bigger factors we consider when we review a board that is in the sub-$100 dollar MSRP range. The H61M/U3S3 motherboard that we reviewed can be currently found online for ~$75.00 USD and when you look at all the features you are getting and the performance you can achieve it makes it pretty easy to...
Pros: Good Performance, Micro ATX Form Factor, Tons of Features, VALUE!!! (MSRP ~$75 USD)
