I recently got a 60gb OCZ vertex 2 ssd. The specs for it said 285 mb/s read and 275 mb/s write. Now I know that's max but I'm getting 200 mb/s read and 65 mb/s on the write using crystaldiskmark sequential test. The other tests are approximately the same or slower. I checked to make sure TRIM is enabled, ahci is selected in the bios, and the drivers for the drive are the newest on the ocz website. Anyone know what the problem could be?

did you do a fresh install or image your old install to the ssd? when you set ahci, did you do it before you installed windows? I also would like to see your atto scores

I did a fresh install, I didn't know about ahci until I checked my read/write speeds then changed the setting from ide to ahci on the ssd. I did the atto test and the scores came out higher. The max read was 275 mb/s and the write was 240 mb/s. Does that mean the other test was incorrect?

Yes it means the other test was incorrect. there are tests that don't work well with ssd drives.. it is suggested to use atto for ssd benchmarks.


@magic bullet : here is a ;ink to a utility that will tell you if your ssd is aligned or not http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/other/157 I don't know how to use it ( I don't have an ssd myself) however if you created the partitions using the windows 7 cd, you should not have any issues
