Hmm, intersting. But he focusses on R/W speeds which are pretty irrelevant for the OS. Funny that he does not mention anything about access time - must be a SSD newbie.

I flashed the firmware on my Asus U3S6 pci-e card and now I can't boot from it. Tried every version of firmware I could find. The thing is tho, I'm now running it off my onboard port with the AMD SATA driver and it's performing incredibly well. Can't tell the difference outside of benchmarks. I still want to try and get the card fixed but in the mean time I've really lost nothing. Interesting.

Small off topic question... Will I have to rerun the firmware upgrade on my SSD if I reformat and reinstall windows?

No. The firmware is installed on the drive itself and can only be replace by another update. You will not lose the firmware doing a reinstall of the OS, or wiping the drive.

Interesting. You would not think that the board makes that much of a difference.

It would be the controller and driver that make the difference. Misfit, can you tell us which controllers and drivers you used on each board?

The AMD was an AMD SB850 controller using the AMD 3.0.765 chipset drivers on 2 SATAIII ports.

The Intel is the Intel P67 controller on 2 SATAIII ports. I downloaded driver version 9.2.0.1015 from the Asus site but the Intel Rapid Storage utility is claiming the driver is at 10.0.0.1046 so it must of updated itself along the way.

Apart from the obvious motherboard and CPU’s, both systems were identical. Stripe size on both is 128kb. The AMD was a bit of a task to get Windows to boot after the install. MBR got messed up but I think it was because I had my regular hard drive plugged in during the installation. The Intel was a breeze once I was able to get into the RAID bios…it was posting too quickly for me to enter the key strokes! And with the Intel I kept my regular hard drive unplugged until after everything was up and working.
