I have Crucial M4, Samsung 830 and Samsung 840 pro.
The M4's and the 830 both score mid 700's (Overall score with AS SSD), the Samsung 840 pro scores around 1100 - BIG diff - But IN real LIFE day-2-day usage - Very little diff.
BOTTOM line ENJOY and do not sweat the SYNTHETIC benchmarks.
And PS yes the chipset does make a diff, amd are not quite as good as Intel - BUT would only notice it by running a benchmark. Switching SSD is not the answer. As stated Mine scores 1100, but the newer Intel Chipsets (IB and Haswell it goes up to 1200 - Bothers me, NOT in the least.
@ Pabelgar - Your AS SSD overall score looks FINE.
.. My 840 Pro, overall score is around 1100, Yours should be slightly lower.
.. "If my Motherboard's chipset is limiting my speeds should I just return my SSD until I get a new Motherboard?"
...... DONT SWEAT IT. A newer Intel MB would probably boot your BENCHMARK scores, but would not effect your real life performance one iota!!
Strike confused - two different people
Your orginal post shows "CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1100T BLACK EDITION" ut your screenshot shows driver = iaSTor - I think that driver is for an Intel chipset, not an AMD chipset.
