SATA 3 and again no changes in speed!OCZ agility 3

Hi guys, I'd like your opinion on this!
I have an OCZ agility 3 wich i had on sata 2 until today that i bought a new mobo and cpu.
I had it formatted while it was AHCI and not IDE(if i remember correct).
When i transfered the ssd on my new motherboard at the SATA 3 port the speed was the same..i changed it to AHCI again but it had very little difference.The SSD's firmware is the latest(2.25) and i've been trimming it very often.

    Advertised 525MB/s Read and 500MB/s Write speeds for the Agility 3 are with ATTO, not CrystalDiskMark.
    http://ocz.com/consumer/download/product-briefs/OCZ_Agility3_Product_sheet.pdf

    ATTO uses highly compressible data to test Read/Write speeds. Highly compressible data is the easiest type of data for any SSD to Read/Write.

    CrystalDiskMark uses highly incompressible data to test Read/Write speeds. Highly incompressible data is the hardest type of data for any SSD to Read/Write.

    Advertised speeds for the Agility 3 using AS-SSD (which also uses incompressible data like CrystalDiskMark) are up to 195MB/s Read and 130MB/s Write.

    So your CrystalDiskMark benchmark results appears to be normal.
  2. So i guess everyone has the same benchmarks on agility 3 then?
    If that's the case ,I will not even think to upgrade my SSD till it's broken or till there are much better SSDs!
    Thanks a lot!

    Yes. You have to benchmark with ATTO in order to see higher results.

    If you are happy with the real-world performance of the SSD then don't worry about benchmark results.

    If you're not happy then there are plenty of better SSDs available. The Agility series is OCZ's low end SSD. OCZ's high performance line is the Vector 150 series.

    Samsung's EVO series with RAPID mode is also a great SSD.

    I just wonder, how is it that there are people having benchmarks with passmark and with crystalDiskMark close to 500mb/s without the zero fill! I searched some baselines with passmark and yeah I saw some around my speed and some at maximum speed!
    I'd really love to know how! Sorry for my insistence
