Hi, my write speeds seem abit low compared to others I've seen, am I missing something?

SSD is in the SATA3 6.0 Gb/s port 1 on the ASRock Extreme3 Gen3. Any help is appreciated !

Those writes are fine if it is incompressible data, but should be higher if compressible data. Do you know which they are?

The read/write speeds advertised by Intel are from ATTO benchmarks, which test only compressible data.

By default, Crystal Disk Mark uses non-compressible data for the tests. To see results for compressible (i.e. higher write numbers) data with CDM, click on File > Test Data > All 0xFF (1 fill)

I don't think AS-SSD has a way to test using compressible data.
