Hey I had a question, my Intel SSD performs great and I have absolutely no problem with it's performance other than the slightly lower than advertised read speeds. My question is, my Windows Experience Index scores are low for a SSD. My SSD only gets a score of 5.9 in the index. Here's a picture of the HDTune so you can see exactly the read thoroughput and the windows experience tab. This has just been eating away at me as of late. Any suggestions? Is it the only 70 MB/s write speed? That's still hella fast tho.
Maybe its both testing speed and looking at the capacity of the drive. While the speeds should be very high, the capacity is somewhat limited and maybe thats why the score isn't higher. But i must admit i don't know what MS bases their numbers on.
I have the intel x-25m g180gb and it also gets a 5.9, which i know is bs because a regular 7200rpm caviar green gets a 5.9. Not sure how the wei does the hdd rating, size may have something to do with it......i heard that it might be a drive incompatibility issues with the intel storage manager, but ive never gotten more than a 5.9.
When I ran WEI for the first time after getting my SSD (x25-m g2 80G) I had a score of 7.3 on the Primary Disk. I used the puter for a week, ran TRIM, ran WEI again, and my score dropped to the same 5.9 your seeing. I know TRIM makes the real world perf better, but I think it hoses your WEI. W/E. Scru M$. Like they know d!ck about performance.
