I Have a hyper x 120gb sata 3 drive for my os (win 7 64bit) but it seems slow for such a drive that has been promised to deliver such high read/write speeds.
here is a benchmark I did.
They claim (and through benchmark tests around the internet) that read speeds are up to 525mb/s and read speeds up to 480mb/s. through this benchmark it doesn't seem that way.
here are my pc's specs
CPU: core i52500k
GPU: HD 5870
psu: 850w quattro
I don't know what's wrong, all the latest drivers are installed, could it be the firmware on the SSD needs to be updated ? is it the mobo bios ? my dads sata 2 ocz SSD boots and operates way faster then mine.
Whatever port your drive is connected to should be in AHCI mode.
If your drive is connected to a GSATA or eSATA port it will perform at slower speeds.
It needs to be connected to the Intel port in AHCI mode for maximum performance.
i did what you said but in the bios the only other option to change the sata crtl settings other than Esata and Gsata is the PCH sata control mode which i changed to ACHI, but then i reboot and system can't boot back into windows, so I had to change it back.
Do i need to change something in the registry in windows ?
