You have a Intel Sata 6.0Gb/s controller.

We are using our Marvell controllers on P55 moboards.

They do not benchmark as good but for everyday use there isn't a bit of difference.

no.

you have sata3, I am sata 2 so I will be capped at around 250.

also you have a better cpu, 4k threaded gets bottlenecked by cpu.

sadly I had to switch back to the intel, because I had severe hanging issues where it got to the point windows stopped responding on the marvell. In terms of performance figures tho I think the marvell was signifcantly superior to the intel, the scores are not the full picture, if watching cpu usage as well the marvell has about half the cpu usage. Of course stability is important so due to the issue I switched back. I even had a hang prior to booting windows on the marvell which was bizarre.

luckily tho in terms of real life performance the thing is lightning fast so in the end not really that relevant.

I had forgotten you switched from the Marvell to the Intel Sata3.0Gb/s controller.

Fking is on a newer moboard with Intel 6.0Gb/s which benchmarks much better than the Marvell.

Real world they are all much faster with a SSD than a HDD.

This has just done my head in, on the left is a brand new Vertex 4 with firmware version 1.5. On the right is a 6 month old Vertex 3

What port do you have the Vertex 4 connected to?

Here is my V4 for comparison, also running firmware 1.5

I have moved it from the 6gb Marvel ports to one of the 6Gb Intel ports and it has definitely improved, however it is difficult to tell which one comes out best as each fair better than the other depending on which benchmark I use

This is my new view of what happened. It is based on a few SSD reports I have read about drives getting stuck in idle states. Also would explain why I had a hang outside of windows.

I believe the ssd got stuck in a idle mode and this effectively caused windows to appear frozen, the trigger for the event was a ID conflict with the old hdd boot device. My theory is the event caused the ssd to power down or go idle, which was fixed on a power cycle, sadly for the marvell that power cycle was me moving the ssd back to the intel controller. So my theory is if I moved the ssd back now it would work ok. However since everything is working fine now and whatever my ssd is been asked to do doesnt feel slow, I wont be doing that so it remains a theory at least for now.

Lately I've been hearing good things about Intel SSD drives, is there a real difference between Intels and other brands ?

Intel costs more. Performance is on par with Crucial M4, Samsung 830. The OCZ Vertex 4 I think is the best performer at this time. People who have them may have more facts though, I have 2 M4s and like them.
