Good deal, INJOY. ?? Did you install the Intel RST driver?
Here are mine for Pheonix Pro 128 Gig, Pheonix Pro and Vertex-2 are very similar. I know that the 120 gigs generally perform slightly beter than their 60 gig counterparts.
Except for the Seq Write and 512K writes – very similar
However the Seq and 512 reads and writes are LOW. I’m currently using the default uSoft AHCI driver. I did a clone from my Intel 80 Gig SSD, Should be using the Latest Intel RST driver (Ver 9)., which means I’ll have to do a clean install using the F6 during install.
(1) Manuf specs for 120 gig Pheonix Pro and Vertex-2
Sequential Access - Read: up to 285MB/s
Sequential Access - Write: up to 275MB/s
(2) WIE for HDD, mine about the same as yours, 7.2 Note: this is also low. My Intel 80Gig G2 was 7.8 (Fresh install, My Torqx (in laptop) was 7.3. This puppy (and yours) should score at least 7.8. Looking at newegg reviews, manuf response on low Seq read/writes was - Need to use Intel's RST driver.
Damn, so I might need a complete re-install then. What's this F6 option during install? When installing Windows 7 I don't remember seeing one. And where do I put the file during the installation process, a USB drive?
