Audio is promising. Hopefully they start doing that on more boards. What's the audio software like? Similar to their sound cards?
Good question. All SSDs that i have played with experience "performance degredation" from usage.
SO, to offset this, I simply don't use the drives used for testing for anything other than drive testing, and I use a seperate drive for OS installs. The drives used to test were loaded with data, and then only read testing has been done since. I have, as recently as yesterday, connected the drives to my P9X79 Deluxe, and confirmed that the numbers have stayed the same, even though they've been used for about 6 board reviews since then.
Audio performance is outstanding. Comes with the fairly standard onboard X-Fi suite, nothing too exciting.
