Intel520 poor writes Tags: SSD Intel Storage Last response: March 18, 2012 6:37 AM in Storage Share Jimz2 March 14, 2012 2:32:39 PM 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 !

Do you know which they are? m 0 l wpcoe March 18, 2012 6:37:43 AM 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. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
