Closed SSD OCZ Agility3 showing as 3gbs transfer not 6gbs Tags: SSD OCZ Rapid Storage Storage Last response: April 16, 2012 8:16 AM in Storage Share JJ2012 March 25, 2012 2:15:55 PM In the Intel rapid storage technology advanced option my 120gb SSD only shows 3gbs transfer rate. My 64gb Corsair shows 6gbs. I thought both were supposed to be 6gbs. Is there a reason why the 120gbs is slower?
