Windows 7: Why is my OCZ Vertex 2 SSD faster than my Corsair Force 3 SSD

Why is my OCZ Vertex 2 SSD faster than my Corsair Force 3 SSD

I have a 60GB OCZ Vertex 2 SSD and a Corsair Force 3 120gb SSD.

Using them on an Acer 5739g laptop, I see windows boot from cold to the Google homepage in 42 seconds using the OCZ drive and 53 seconds using the Corsair Drive.

Games like Skyrim also seem to respond much faster with the OCZ drive than the Corsair and even minecraft loads faster on the OCZ.

Why is this??? On paper, the Corsair drive is much faster supporting up to 550mb/sec via Sata3 (I only have sata2 so would expect them to be the same). but the Corsair also supports up to 85,000 ops per second as opposed to 50,000 on the OCZ, but why is the system so much more responsive with the OCZ?confused

Additional info: Both drives are direct clones of each other and running the latest firmware. My laptop has 4gb of RAM.

Hmmmm... lemme take a shot at this. When your 60gb drive boots, it has to check 60gb's of hard drive to load the OS, and whatnot. The 120gb drive boots, it has to check 120gb to load the OS and whatnot. Unless the slowest part of the path between the hard drive and the cpu is twice as fast when using the 120gb, it will take more time.

umm, no I don't think so

Thanks for the response, but I really don't think that's true. Otherwise a 2TB hard drive would take forever to boot up.

I think it's more likely something to do with my motherboard and the sata interface to the drive.

its more than likely driver related, you might have the latest drivers, but they are probably still going to be different as they are different drive.

Don't know if it would be helpful to look at event 100?? or 101?? that shows boot up times and has some XML that will show you bytes transferred and other pieces of the boot up processes (including waits). I think the events are in event viewer under SYSTEM. I can't recall if a bootup event log record is cut every boot up or only when the boot is longer than Windows "desires".

This could be the problem! ... what do you mean by 'clones of each other'??

Anyhow it's always best to do a fresh install , rather than 'clone' something else , even more so with SSD I believe!
