Vertex 3 CrystalMark bench results look wrong?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi. Just a quick question.

These are the bench results from CrystalMark for my vertex 3 240 gb.

Sequential Read: 270.7 Sequential write: 239.3

512k Read: 255.1 512k write: 235.7

4k Read: 29.48 4k Write: 70.98

4KQD32 read: 181.6 4KQD32 write: 194.5

Having read an article on Toms about the same drive and benchmarks (http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...sd,2869-8.html) , mine look very slow.

Would I be right in assuming this is because of my motherboard, which has only 3 gbs interface, rather than 6 gbs interface? So a sort of bottleneck is occuring?

I have to say, I don't see this SSD as anything exceptional; I had 2 spinpoint hdds and they seemed just as quick! Must be something wrong somewhere. Thank you for any help/advice.

PS How can I upload an image here? It asks me to enter URL, I do, and the URL, not the image, comes up instead! Thanks.

Yes. The drive is neutered quite thoroughly on SATA 3G.

Right. That'll be it then. Shame. Thanks.
