How Well Does The AMD AM4 Platform Hold Up When It Comes To Storage Performance?

The AMD AM4 platform supports the new AMD Ryzen CPUs and if you were wondering how well the storage performs on the X370 platform then you have come to the right place as we are going to take a look into just that.

MSI X370 XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM was used in order to test the storage performance and here is what we found out. The following is the hardware that has been used.

Here we see that the performance is indeed better than what we have seen previously. But Intel’s performance is much better, in this case, thanks to the z270 chipset.

Again when it comes to M.2 performance the X370 chipset lags behind a bit as compared to the Intel Z270 chipset.

There is not much of a difference between Intel and AMD when it comes to this test. We can see in these tests that AMD has come a long way and the performance is way better as compared to previous motherboards and chipsets.

AMD has indeed come a long way when it comes to AMD Ryzen and the company has brought the fight to Intel. While Intel might be keeping its cool on the face of things there is no denying that AMD has created quite a disruption.

Now we have to wait and see whether or not AMD can do the same when it comes to the GPU market with AMD Vega. We have had some leaks here and there but AMD has been very secretive about this upcoming architecture. We will have to wait and see how it competes against the Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti.

Let us know what you think about the AMD AM4 platform and whether or not you are interested in buying an AMD Ryzen CPU.
