  1. According to Crucial:

    Sustained Sequential Read up to (128k transfer): 500MB/s
    Sustained Sequential Write up to (128k transfer): 130MB/s
    Random Read up to (4k transfer): 62,000 IOPS
    Random Write up to (4k transfer): 35,000 IOPS
    End Quote.

    They don't say what testing method was used though. Results with ATTO benchmark could be quite different. At least your sequential numbers look very close to spec.

  2. thanx yogi, but you think its working good? do I need to review the installation process or leave it as it is?

    I think that it is doing fine. HERE is some more data from Crucial.

    Crucial said that they did their testing with "IO Meter", which is a free, open source program: IO METER.

    You may want to give it a try, if you can figure out how to use it. I tried it using default settings and got unbelievably low results on my Samsung SSD. It is a complex program with a lot of different settings.

  4. many thanks YOGi.. :-)
  5. You're quite welcome! Glad to have helped!
