Same drive, same FW, same score. I think the Intel G2 gets 7.6
Not seen any score for a raid0 set up.

5.9 with a patriot ps-100 32 GB

I know, that is low and sad for an SSD, I should ave gone with intel

interestingly enough, it was also 5.9 with a barracuda, according to windows nothing changed

but according to all other benchmark tools i used, performance is about 50% higher

It may be that your disk controller or drivers are causing a bottleneck somewhere. And don't forget that the 160GB model is slightly faster than the 80GB.

When I first got my x25-m back in November of 2009 I was getting a 7.8.

I re-ran the test today and it's now stuck at 5.9. I re-formatted, re-installed windows, updated all firmware, etc.. and it will not budge.. Anyone have any ideas?

I got a G,SKil Falcon 128gb (not the falcon II but the first one) and got WEI 5.9

And I just bought a new OCZ Vertex LE 100Gb and my WEI raise to 7.7 !!

I wish to buy another one but wonder when intel will support SSD in RAID-0 while supporting TRIM ??

Well I don't see anything obvious. My 160GB Intel X25-M G2 drive has a "B8 End-to-end errors" count that I though might show some indication, but it doesn't show in your screenshot.

Hi,

I know this tread is old but I think it still a subject that can appreciate :p 

The last test I ran give me 7.7 with my Corsair F90
Its run on a Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits


First think I want to say, its that with SSD you can get random result, like really random.

The first test I ran after my windows and driver install give me 7.3
I install windows in IDE mode so I activate the ACHI today and after that I drop at 5.9. I panic and check around what can be wrong, reinstalling all kind of driver and play with a lot of setting but still the same thing since 5 minute ago but for no reason except one.

SSD have random performance for 1 good reason.
Its in the writing process. If you lucky the ssd just have to write the data. If you not it will have to do an Erase/Move/Write operation.

Here I got to test done by CrystalDiskMark. Both test have been done in a 10 minutes interval. No reboot. No antivirus active.

TEST 1
Sequential Read : 155.421 MB/s
Sequential Write : 133.640 MB/s
Random Read 512KB : 150.439 MB/s
Random Write 512KB : 133.566 MB/s
Random Read 4KB (QD=1) : 28.191 MB/s [ 6882.6 IOPS]
Random Write 4KB (QD=1) : 77.603 MB/s [ 18946.0 IOPS]
Random Read 4KB (QD=32) : 136.800 MB/s [ 33398.4 IOPS]
Random Write 4KB (QD=32) : 131.669 MB/s [ 32145.7 IOPS]

TEST 2
Sequential Read : 153.054 MB/s
Sequential Write : 52.764 MB/s
Random Read 512KB : 148.129 MB/s
Random Write 512KB : 49.126 MB/s
Random Read 4KB (QD=1) : 20.916 MB/s [ 5106.4 IOPS]
Random Write 4KB (QD=1) : 49.925 MB/s [ 12188.7 IOPS]
Random Read 4KB (QD=32) : 105.839 MB/s [ 25839.6 IOPS]
Random Write 4KB (QD=32) : 46.576 MB/s [ 11371.2 IOPS]


You can also read this source : source
Quote:
An SSD write operation may also require a NAND erase operation and move data from one NAND block to another. These involve multiple page writes and block-erase operations, which will slow down the SSD write operation even more



Maybe I'm wrong and it slow down for a completly different reason but its weird..

My Config:
Windows 7 Ult 64bits
Intel Core i7 950 3.06@3840Ghz (fresh by Corsair H50)
12GB (3x4GB) DDR3 1333 @640Mhz 9-9-9-21 (3200Mhz Triple channel)
MotherBoard Gigabyte X58A-UD3R [X58 chipset, ICH10R Southbridge] (support SATA3 & USB3)

on that i am getting a 7.7
during backup i noticed the best transfer rate being about 200 MBS

the ssd is a crucial 256 sata III and it should be able to run faster

i need to find a program that tells me what sata hardware version is in this box

7.9 Corsair Force GT 120GB drive. ACHI enabled in windows / bios with trim enabled.

Drive tests out on Atto on new 1.3 firmware at 486MB/s write and 555MB/s read. Little slower than ratings on write but still freaking blistering, ridiculous fast. I bet with more compressible data, she would hit her write rating no problem.

Here is a copy of the test vs an old 500gb wd green sata drive.


To note, this is NOT a fresh install or any other stuff to try to show the drive being faster than real life. Installed the OS weeks ago, installed and de-installed lots of programs.. games and other stuff. This is just how she runs! Heck, Just turned on AHCI and TRIM today. Not sure if it will get faster or how long trim takes to do all that it does.

@ zmaynard67 - Donwloand and run As SSD, DO NOT need to run the benchmark just open it. Look in the upper left. The driver should be iastor, msahci is OK just not quite as good as iastor. IF it says pcide - THERE's the reason for 5.9. Also verify that partition alignment is OK.

120 gig Agility III on I5-2500k = 7.9
128 gig Crucial M4 on i5-2410M (Laptop) = 7.9

I am testing these drives in new build:

i7-2600k
Asus P8Z68-V Pro
16GB Corsair Vengeance 4x4GB CMZ8GX3MXA1866C9B

The sequential read is crushing the SSD drive that SilentBob999 tested above with same testing suite but the rest is significantly lower.

I am testing it here b/c I purchased 2 other Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid drives and put them in the same RAID 0 (striped) in a Sony VGN-AR90e and that laptop now boots with Win 7 64 in 45 seconds.

Anybody's thoughts on this? Should I move to an SSD? Please respond at http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/273111-32-hybrid-seag...

ATTO Disk Benchmark


I realize that garage1217 is 2-2.5x faster however this setup cost only $178 for 1TB.

That's not to say that a primary SSD boot drive and a normal hard drive for primary storage isn't the way to go, but I'm not sure any hard drive maker out there has a normal hard drive this fast.

BTW the Seagate Momentus XT has a 4GB of SSD chip in addition to the 500GB platter which is why this is so much faster than The WD 500GB Green drive spinning at the same speed (7200 RPM).

With the WD going for $52 on new egg x2 = $104. I'll pay $178 ANY day to almost triple the performance.

Any thoughts/comments/recommendations? Please respond at http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/273111-32-hybrid-seag...

PerformanceTest 7.0 | Same Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid RAID0 as above



System Summary (for fun, no OC yet 'cause I just built it and need sleep)


REASON FOR POSTING SO MANY TESTS
I would like to know if there is a faster setup I can use for maybe 1.5-2x the cost of this setup ($178 for 1TB). I do not care about RAID0 comments regarding HD's crashing (that's what backups and imaging are for) I just want speed.

MACHINE'S PRIMARY USAGE
Primary use of machine is Photoshop CS5 and some Premiere Pro CS5 video editing (Sony Vegas too).

TARGET PRICE FOR UPGRADING THE SPEED OF THIS MACHINE
Disregard the current investment of $178 (I have two laptops that could use the speedboost and extra capacity of these drives ). I would be willing to spend $240-$320 for 1TB of total HD space to achieve true SSD performance for my boot drive and same Hybrid SSD speed for my primary storage drive(s).

Please throw your ideas at me at http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/273111-32-hybrid-seag...

Yes i totally agree with the scores being random on ssd. I have a Corsair Dorce Series 3 120GB so I ran it once and got 7.4, ran it again and it dropped to 5.9, ran a third time and jumped to 7.8! Im very happy with my score :D
