Is this access time normal? Tags: SSD Vertex Windows 8 Storage Last response: November 23, 2012 5:09 AM in Storage Share Wcool93 November 22, 2012 6:24:44 PM Hi there, I'm running the following system: Intel i7 3770 @4.3Ghz GA-Z77X-UD5H rev1.0 Vertex 4 128GB @ f/w 1.5 Windows 8 Pro with Media Center Pack I hooked up my Vertex 4 128GB SSD on the SATAIII port (I read that Intel Ivy had 2, read, real, SATA3 ports, but that aside). After I installed Windows 8 I did a benchmark, just to see if the Vertex 4 performed like it should. You can see it below: I find that the access time is quite high. What do you think? Is this normal for a Marvell based drive? I think I had quicker access times on my sandforce based drive. I'm rather confused atm whether my SSD is allright. I hope some of you can shed their light on this.

In general those results are outstanding though, I wouldn't worry about that drive not performing up to spec.
