Dell laptop - Agility 3 SSD poor performance =(

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have just purchased a Dell L502X and placed an agility 3 120GB SSD inside it. Performance seems to be improved but not as much as i expected, in particular compared to my desktop ( running an I7 920 and using SATA 2 ).

Bare in mind this is the exact same drive on both machines.
Even the performance numbers arnt that great for a decent SSD. Any help?

In my desktop i got the same sequencial reads, the writes were pretty much at 170-190
The 4K scores were approx 100Mb/s Read and 70Mbs Write
The 4K-64K were much closer to the sequencial writes. And access times were pretty much the same.

The drive is set to AHCI, i have rapid storage installed and all appropriate chipset drivers are working. This laptop is the latest gen Sandy bridge along with Sata 3 and a Quad core I7....

I think this is the best you can get on laptop. Perhaps there are some limitations. Dunno. But I always see people getting worse speeds on laptops.
