Windows 7: Show us your SSD performance

Well I don't want to seem to "sure" about this advice but I have heard that not using the nvidia drivers was better. Though I am using them and it's ok. I DID have to turn off the NCQ option for the sata port with the SSD though (that might be due to the nvidia drivers).

I can't WAIT to upgrade and get the heck off my nvidia board. Not only that but the firewire doesn't work right and apparently NEVER HAS on the nvidia boards ever. They make great GPUs but their MBs are completely off my recommend list forever now.

It is always the case with benchmarks that their numbers are not comparable between various programs.

You can only realisticly compare different machines using the SAME program.

File IO is notoriously tweaky. You can have 5 programmers try to write a file writing function and you will get 5 completely different throughputs. THere are tons of options and different ways of writing data to storage devices. So I'd take the numbers as absolutes with a big grain of salt

Just compare the numbers you get with each benchmark to other people's numbers using the same benchmark. Then you are really benchmarking your drive/firmware/driver and motherboard as compared to someone elses and it really means something.

Thanks for the info, seems to have helped

These look a little better.

Brand new out of the box Intel X25-V. Might get a second one in a month or so and run these jewels in RAID0.

Looks good so far

Congrats on the new SSD.

That's an outstanding score for the X25 V.

It's rated by Intel at Sequential Read 170 MB/s and Sequential writes 35 MB/s.

Can you share with the rest of us how you got the score of max 265 MB/s? Any special settings enable/disable?

Which drivers are you using? The new Intel or standard MS?

Can you run the AS SSD Benchmark, just click the 'Download' link at the very top, the site is in German but the program is in English.

There's a nice SSD and CPU Benchmark list and comparison tool on the AnandTech site.

AnandTech SSD Bench - View CPU Bench

Very good for looking up SSD and CPU benchmarks and comparing any two in a side by side list.

Dave,

I just followed the SSD tweaks (SSD Tweaks and Optimizations in Windows 7) but prefetch and superfetch are still on. Moved temp to my RAID0... and that's about it really.
It's a brand new 7 install. TRIM is on, but it's not running in AHCI mode so no clue how that works.

See attachment for AS SSD bench results and driver details.
