Unsure about SSD speed

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So about a month ago or so I bought myself a OCZ Agility 3 and have been satisfied with it.
However, I read about how some people were getting low red/write speeds so I decided to test mine with CrystalDiskMark 3.0.1.

Do these scores look okay or is something wrong?

(note: I did update the firmware to the latest one)

Are you using the SATA3 ports? If so, yeah that's pretty low. If your using the SATA2 ports, its not too bad.

CDM uses incompressible data. Agility 3 does poorly with incompressible data hence the low scores.

Download Atto and test. You should see the 500/500 speeds they advertise.

But keep in mind that CDM is the far better real world test of a ssd.

Ahh alright. Thanks for the information and I'll try the software you recommended smile.gif


EDIT: I bench'ed it with Atto and these are the results: Results.jpg 110k .jpg file

I'm relieved to see it's running perfectly fine at it's advertised speeds. Thank you for helping me out with this!
