The only thing I will point out is you are using the generic Microsoft SATA controller driver(msahci in the top left corner) and we have found that USUALLY the newer Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver works better. I say usually because sometimes it makes things worse.....most of the time it works great. I would at least look into it.

Here is a screen shot of what i'm dealing with , i went to the Asus website and i thought i downloaded a driver called rapid storage technology but after installing i get the below driver.

My computer is an Asus u56E win 7 sp1 64 bit/ i also have a Sandy bridge i 5 processor 2430M

I've run mine every way you can possibly run them. The problem is that sata III is maxed out right now. The limitations of sata III have been reached and no matter what the numbers say, about 500MB/s is all the real world sata III is capable of carrying. If you look at the newer boards, the high end ones are coming out with sata express which runs off of pcie lanes instead of sata ports in order to overcome sata limitations. I think some are running 1 SSD off of 2 sata III ports, but I'm not sure about that part. Just like USB 3.0, there is the theoretical speed, but in real world, you won't get even close to it. I've tested it running it from 1 SSD to another SSD, and the limits are still there.

The sata limitations are why the new SSDs coming out like the Samsung 850 Pro are really no faster than the 840 Pro, because of the sata limitations. Running it over pcie lanes is the only way they will ever be faster.

Wow, this is a truly informative post and what i keep reading as well . Why bother spending more money if your going to be limited to around 500 mb .

I didn't realize it at first but it makes sense , why is everyone posting the ram cache scores then if it means nothing in real World usage ? Deceiving don't you think ?

Johnny, if you run it 5 more times, you will get 5 different scores. A little advice. Quit running them and use it and enjoy it. I run a test about every 6 months. If the numbers are 'in the ball park' I don't run any more. I will only run a test if I can tell a slow down or feel like something is not right. That's all benchmarks are good for in real world performance. There are two kinds of people who run benchmarks all the time. Those who don't know enough and think they really mean something. And those who do know they don't mean anything but think they can impress everyone with the numbers. Everyone else, just use the SSD and enjoy the quickness.

The only reason i ran it was because of post # 1682 , i agree with you.

Thanks

Just recieved my Samsung 850

Just received my Samsung 850 SSD drive (512) today, but won't be able to install it till after class. I have a 5pm class this evening.

Anyway I got it so that I can use my 840 (256gig) as a second drive to house Windows 10 for testing purposes. Plus I wanted a larger drive to move files around, including my 50+gig photo library.

I'm not sure how much of a performance gain I'll see over the 840, but I do like the larger size, and thus the main reason for getting this, plus the 850 does look to have killer performance.

BTW, for some odd reason, I'm still not able to run the AS SSD benchmark without error...

so I can't say if this score is right...

I've had this issue ever since moving to Windows 8.1. I simply can't run it without erroring out

And since I already have a Samsung 840 installed, yes, I have the Magician software installed, and Rapid mode enabled.

Well that's it for now, have to get ready for class.

Later.

To be honest mate for that killer performance one pays premium prices and personally for me the speed of the bog standard EVO is more that enough.
I sometimes think that some will not be happy until the speed reaches the speed of light or perhaps before it is even set in motion
