Sounds like it might be running at SATA 150 rather than 300. Blindsay April 24, 2009 8:09:05 PM Unfortunetly my BIOS is pretty crippled the only option was to run it in ACHI (spelling?) mode and that is enabled Related resources Intel X25E - SSD 128GB - Forum Intel ssd x25-e in raid1 - Forum Slow Performance : 4x OCZ SSDs and Adaptec RAID Controller - Forum Need help picking SAS vs SATA - Forum Most powerful PC in the world - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Same issue with my ssd in my netbook. just looked it up, supports SATAII sub mesa a c 125 G Storage April 25, 2009 1:36:17 AM Could you try the "Files" (filesystem) benchmark of HDTune, or the ATTO benchmark? Does it give different results? MrLinux a b G Storage April 25, 2009 6:04:52 AM Calling the interface SATAI or SATAII doecn't mean a lot, it could be SATAII (because of the command set it uses) and still only work at 1.5Gig. Booting from a Linux live CD and looking through the system log file (/var/log/dmesg) will tell you what it (really) supports, you should get a log entry something like this: [ 4.799353] ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300) daship April 25, 2009 5:25:06 PM Supports it? Thats because it will run but only Sata 1 speeds. Blindsay April 25, 2009 6:31:59 PM Its not SATA 1 sub mesa a c 125 G Storage April 27, 2009 10:43:08 AM So, benchmark it properly first. apache_lives April 27, 2009 11:20:55 AM depends on what you mean by performance - gaming wont see any diference where as general usage (opening apps, day to day tasks) will see a mammoth boost also with windows start up half of it is PNP initialization and some network etc - take note when the HDD is actually being accessed etc Can't find your answer ?
