Very nice scores. Odd all of your scores except the Read Access are much better than mine yet the total score is quite a bit different.
I noticed that as well. If there is one thing I have learned about SSD benchmarks, it is that I don't know anything about them!

Me either.
You have a mean board and CPU, that may account for the higher read/write numbers. But I may be wrong as I often am.

Forget all the nums. Your best benchmark is when you are happy with the SSD's performance. What else can you ask for. All those nums just spin your head.

One of my SSDs has a pretty lousy WEI (6.9). But subjectively that is the system that gives me the best performance. It is a laptop and not my system with the most advanced hardware level amongst my systems. Go figure.

I agree in part Wolfgang. I measure my Crucial M4 128 GB performance with Queue Depths 32, 64 using AS-SSD, Anvil, and Crystal Disk Mark and get very different results. I run the tests multiple times of course because each test will vary a bit from run to run.

I notice a dramatic difference between the SSD and a spinner so maybe a good price for your SSD should be a priority over some extraordinary benchmark figure which may be pretty meaningless at the end of the day.

That is odd though Wolfgang. I'm very happy with performance but today some apps are opening noticably slower.

Yeah, stick with one benchmark, one has not much relation to another. Also running them on SSDs causes writes and some wear.

Nice improvement

Nice scores, that Samsung does look tempting.

The M4 and 830 are on the top of my SSD list ATM, nice to see the AS SSD side by side.
The 830 has great write performance, 4k read is more important for daily use.
Unless you do a lot of sequential writes they are pretty even, average user won't notice a difference between the two.
The access times are interesting, the 830 write numbers are very good.

OK, worthless benchmark numbers aside.......this drive still feels blazing fast!

Gary, I notice that problem sometimes too. But it must be something else in the system that causes the delay. Who knows. I never went thru the trouble to find out.

It may be because we have used the system a lot. I am on it now after a 6-7 hour idle time and all the speed is back, so maybe TRIM has worked its magic.

Not sure. Trim and Garbage Collection would only have a positive impact on write operations. And the system does relatively few writes. I think the causes of the slowdown are in another area of the OS - maybe too many temp files or something like that.
