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. | Report abuse abdu3000 July 9, 2010 3:38:53 PM I have tweak it and it runs better now. | Report abuse blackhawk1928 July 9, 2010 4:07:04 PM Something is wrong with your Intel X25-M 80GB...reads should be over 250mbps if isn't bottle necked by connection. | Report abuse abdu3000 July 9, 2010 11:01:10 PM It can be 240 or 230. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>Why is my Intel 160GB X25-M SSD a lot slower than the 80GB one?> Related ressources: ForumIntel X25-M SSD 80GB RAID-0 or NOT?
