I was wondering if anyone could help me with this?
I recently bough a 128 Gb Crucial SSD. I performed speed tests in both Windows and Ubunutu and I can only get read speeds of upto about 270 Mb/s whilist I should be getting faster speeds. My system configuration is as follows:
The motherboard claims to have SATA 3 ports but from the speeds I'm getting it looks like my SSD is running at SATA 2 speeds. I have set the mainboard to operate in AHCI mode and am using a proper SATA 3 cable. I have also updated the motherboard chipset drivers to the latest versions from the AMD website.
Can anyone offer any insight into why I am getting low speeds. I know that my Mainboard is budget board but it is advertised as a SATA 3 board.
How did you perform the speed test? Different programs are used and they give different results. That being said, one does need to make sure that everything is up to date. I had to flash my Bios to a new version and that helped as well.
FYI: I now use Bench 32 by ATTO software. That is the same one that Toms uses and it says my drive is doing 500/400 ish. That is closer to advertised.
