I can totally tell the performance increase with the new RST drivers while just uisng windows. smile.gif

The benchmarks ive seen are about 20-30mbs increase in Reads and 10-15mbs in writes over the 11.2.0.1006 drivers.


FYI: Also theres a new Intel LAN driver out 17.2 smile.gif

Does the new RST 11.5 allow TRIM for SSD using RAID?

I tried these new RST drivers, and saw virtually no change in AHCI (non-RAID) SATA3 performance.

Also, I installed the new P8Z77-V 1406 bios, and it fixes the can't-enter-bios issue 1205/1206 introduced. At least as long as you set "Fast Boot" to Disabled in the bios options the first time you enter it.

Updating now...

Here is before update bench..
Having issues loading picture. but,
AS-SSD 507MB read, 324MB write.
Score 734
Drive is half capacity - Samsung 830 128gig.

Edit..

Ok I need more sleep, but with new update.

AS-SSD 502MB read, 325MB write
746 score

The 4k read is no difference, the 4k write is 6MB faster.

Not sure but I think that all fits the error margins, dunno if it improved anything benchmark wise.
Windows interaction does seem faster, programs seem a little snappier too. I think there is a performance increase, just by up to 10MB increase in performance though.

I did not run my RAID0 but they are only SATA2 drives which are maxed already.

I updated to 1406 through Win7 and it got rid of the original boot logo with the Intel logo.. I thought this looked quite cool. Now its just a black screen with an ASUS logo in the middle. Did it do this for you too?

Anybody here uses the Wi-Fi go AP mode? When I enable it, CPU usage shoots up....90% on one core and 50% on all the others. Just checking if this is normal.
