Gigabyte B250N Phoenix WiFi review: a lot of ITX for your money

Cheaper still and even more refined


Benchmarks (USB 3.1)

Since USB 3.1 is not a part of the chipset, the motherboard manufacturers have to use extra controller chips in order to support the new interface. We use the Sandisk Extreme 900 960GB, the fastest external SSD available at the time of writing, to test the speed of this interface. In contrast with previous tests we also no longer perform this test with C-states set at C8. Instead we use the default settings of the motherboard.

While the original B150N Phoenix WiFi slightly disappointed in this test and did not surpass 600 MB/s for both reading and writing, the new B250-variant performs very well with scores of over 900 MB/s.
