Actually, very good point. Again, I can only wonder why a thorough guy like me haven't already run several different benchmarks to get the best picture of my drive's performance. Will post more results later.

Ya that info link is another ssd- but you might get some general info from it- and seems folks like to run 4 blocks or something. Seems if or when I get a ssd I will need to educate my self more and seems might be some added software I might need too?

Any way my mobo use the se9128 but I bought this mobo it has a added chip that is said will let the sataIII and usb3 run at full speeds with no hit on the pcie [plx?]- If I understand that right. I know it is least one gigabyte mobo with a like chip. Best I understand it. I can be running sataIII and usb3 while gaming and my pcie or vid card will not be bumped to 8x speeds from 16x. I am not sure if my se9128 is caped at 5gigs or not or will run the full 6gigs- I think I read marvel caps it at 5 and can say it is a true 5.

As said normally benches are more set up to favor the intel- Folks argue and say marvel is faster- again I guess who is setting it up or trying to favor 1 over the other. I would guess either or marvel or intel is not above fudging in his favor and if can get away with it. I have read older marvel had more troubles or could drop raids or something- but is fixed with the 9128 or se anyway- I think I read it is a 9182 also? My mobo uses these Marvell® SE9128 / JMicron 363 chipsets.

Best I understand it sataIII on many mobos uses part of the pcie lanes and can put a hit on the vid cards performance - I should not have that prob on this mobo- the msi p55 gd85 has the same chip as my mobo.

So I guess I am saying- these such things might hinder your performance a lil too- I am not sure but I guess could make your bench tests not be what you think they should be or could be.

I am just killing time- maybe will learn something too.. Take a break from gaming- hell most days I game like 15 hours a day. Been watching a lot of movies on the net lately and being I can only hear my tv can not watch it the picture has gone on it.. I like freemoviesaddict.com- lots of movies but I have seen most of them or now any way. Wish I could find more kung fu movies I have seen them all at youtube and crackle- love them movies- been looking for the heros of shaolin with jet li- it has 2 other names but I can not find it other than some give me a virus site crap.. I seen the new movie Hanna a few hours ago- it was pretty good- the lil girl kicks butt.. I am waiting for the green lantern and hobo with a shotgun- Hobo with a shotgun looks like a flipping trip for reals..

Thinking about my last post. If or when you are in testing mode or care or have the time. Maybe you should lower your desk top or display settings to standard if using areo glass etc. I guess glass runs in dx10 or dx11 and might put more a hit on the pcie in general- maybe the ssd scores will be more high if glass/areo was dropped and if using standard..

I do not know- Your mobo might not get the hit some others do- Your mobo might handle such things with a north or south bridge maybe and not the cpu? Or your cpu might have more lanes to work with etc..

Its a thought anyway..

ezeht has already explained
Have a look at these, all from the same drive, Its no wonder I prefer HDTune and ATTO over Crystal Disk Mark
At the end of the day tho you have a fast drive, no doubt about that

Oh ya- I had forgot until just seen in one of pooch screens. The said max speeds for hdd is burst speeds not 24/7 speeds. Even then I think the said max speeds are only in a raid. I am not sure about the last part tho- I do know they do not run top speeds 24/7 it is burst speeds. Or best I understand it any way..

Ya now that I am thinking about it. It is professional benchers or hard core benchers just like gamers- and whole sites dedicated to mostly just bench marks- the raptorpit for one. Them guys buy top end pc's and vid cards normally for gaming and just to bench on and for contests and do not even game on them.

They install just windows and the bare basics not even security and tweak the systems for best performance and run them lean and turn off all extra they can and then run bench marks.

So I would guess many bench marks would be better than a normal user- seems like common sense to me..

Some of the same guys will do same things build high end systems just to fold with also..

I need a nap.

Laters..

Guys, sorry, new to this forum, but rather than start a new thead I believe my question is pertinent here. As you can see from my system specs, I'm running a Gigabyte mb with the Marvell 9128. I can't find the "1051 driver" you guys are referring to. The Gigabyte website has only "Marvell Console Driver (SATA3) vers. 1.0.0.1027" and "Marvell RAID Utility (SATA3) vers. 4.1.0.1700" available. I'm assuming the "Console Driver" is what we're talking about here.

The French website cited earlier in this thread doesn't have any "1051" version; rather it has "drivers" vers. 1.2.0.1003 and "Marvell Storage Utility 4.1.0.1915". Has anyone tried these, or do you have another location for "1051"?
