Windows 7: Show us your SSD performance

25 Mar 2010   #321
Wishmaster

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
 
 

I updated my Intels FW to 02HD & I got a little overall boost in performance according to AS SSD.

I tried these Intel drivers, and for me performance seemed to have dropped across the board. (albiet slightly)


The good news is, the Intel driver is passing the TRIM commands to the SSD. At least for a single drive.

To check:
Command prompt > fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify

DisableDeleteNotify = 1 (Windows TRIM commands are disabled)
DisableDeleteNotify = 0 (Windows TRIM commands are enabled)


Anyone else try it out care to share your thoughts?

- I put the swapfile on the HDD, set at 5500MB min/max

- works a treat and frees up SSD space, too..
btw what happens if that hdd goes boom? no more windows 7 boot?
That's another problem. I hear they have short lifespans. Yes, if it goes boom you wont be doing anything. Maybe you'll get a bios screen, but that's about it as far as booting goes.

Speaking of SSD drives. Here is an interesting thing. Its a case you can insert two cf cards in and use like any other ssd drive.

Yeah, but it is also a lot slower - less than half the speed.

I just installed them and I agree that the overall bench mark went down a very little, funny thing is it seems faster and my boot time went down three whole seconds
The fsutil command returns a 0 on my single drive system. Thanks for posting the link for the drivers.
