SATA3 v.s SATA3 Speeds

I’ve recently switched Asus Sabertooth X58 to an Asus Maximus VI Hero X87. Both had SATA 3.0 ports but I found they were not both equal.

I used Samsung Magician which came with my SSD to perform for a simple test and found the following results:
Samsung 830 Bench X58

Samsung 830 Bench X87

You can see the newer X87 board has increase in performance all round but especially the sequential writes. Both were using the same SSD on Windows 7 SP1.
