Why is my Intel 160GB X25-M SSD a lot slower than the 80GB one? Tags: SSD Benchmark Intel Storage Last response: July 9, 2010 11:01 PM in Storage Share abdu3000 July 3, 2010 11:17:57 PM I used HDTach to benchmark two SSD drives. One is Intel X25-M G2 160GB and the other is Intel X25-M G2 80GB. The 80GB has 0.1 ms seek time and 205MB/sec average read while the 160GB has 0.4ms seek time and 68MB/sec average read. Why is there a big difference between the two drives when only capacity is the difference? Both are running on Windows 7 64bit systems. Is there anything to do to get better performance from the drives?

The 160 should have a read of 270 with 0.1 seek. m 0 l abdu3000 July 9, 2010 3:38:53 PM I have tweak it and it runs better now. m 0 l Related resources Only 74.4GB of 80GB intel x25-m SSD on disk? - Forum My Abit IB9 and intel x25m 80GB SSD - Forum INTEL SSDSA2MH160G2R5 X25-M 160GB SSD SATA 3.0 at $ 519.99 - Forum Unacceptable hangs on Intel 160GB SSD X-25M - Forum Intel SSD x25m 80gb g1 does it support trim? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
