Windows 7: What is actual SATA tranfer rate real world???

For a quick and simple test (if you have a Nvidia chip set) you can go to device manager. Right click on your Serial ATA Controller and go to properties. Then select a port. Once there, there should be a "Speed test" button. AHCI mode I believe

that's interesting - i don't get anything like that on my system - no port tabs.

maybe it's a feature of your nforce chipset driver?

I'll have to check my daughters netbook and see if it has it. It's the only other windows 7 PC in the house. I just assumed it was a feature of windows 7.

looks like it is an nforce specific thing - my netbook has it (and a slow drive!)

My daughters netbook doesn't have it. Hers has an Intel chip set so I would say that it is an Nforce specific option. Your netbook drive is likely a 5400 RPM drive and that will hurt performance compared to a 7200 RPM drive.

yeah, i suppose i'll get round to upgrading it someday...it's about 5th on the list atm.

my main desktop 'needs' an ssd and a new gfx card, and the second monitor goes all green from time to time, then the netbook could do with 2 more gigs of ram before a hdd/ssd...

it never stops does it? (which is good if you can afford it!)

I believe it is unique to Nvidia chipsetted mobo's. I have 3 Win7 PCs and none gets this option, but none have that chipset make either!

Can those who have posted also add whether you are running your SATA drives in IDE or AHCI modes?
