Does anyone have any idea how this is possible? Thanks!
It's not possible. You tested a virtual hard drive file. Obviously the HDTune app is not designed to handle that.

Test from the host computer and see what your results are...that will be far more accurate.

Yea, I always get flaky Atto and HDTune results when trying them on a virtual system.

Thanks for sharing the info whs. I am glad to see some more Intels here. I can't wait to see some of the new OCZ and Patriot drives with SandForce controllers. I may buy one.

Thanks again for sharing the data

I wonder why the CPU usage is so high?.....

Yeah; I was wondering about the CPU usage too. Maybe it's because I have a pretty old CPU (AMD 4800+). I have a 5600+ (that's the best my mobo can take) sitting on my desk but did not install it yet.
I have an OCZ Vertex too. But that will go on my Dell in Germany (in May).

That CPU usage could be because of the older chip. Thanks for the info.

Here is what v1881 firmware did to my Patriot Torqx 128GB SSD. I don't know what the big dips are caused by. I have started seeing them in the last few tests.

Look at my CPU usage....I don't know if yours is accurate or mine... but interesting.

That's interesting in several regards.

1. Your MB/sec is practically the same as on my Intel 80GB (which is a 1.8")
2. Your CPU usage is negative versus mine being 21.3% - I wonder whether those times are accurate (both) - how can CPU time become negative.
3. The SSD access time is actually in Nanoseconds. But the program (probably initially being written for HDDs) cannot show Nanoseconds. Milliseconds is its smallest unit.
