I might just run my computer without any stat drivers. What do you guys think ?

i don't see how the asmedia ports can be as fast as the native intel one's.

connect to the intel port and install lastest rst and try again/

Do you really reboot it enough for it to matter? I mean, are you really worried about an extra 10 seconds of boot time? How far we've come, if that's a big issue.

I develop game engines so I usually reboot my computer about 6 times a day after running executables that make changes to my system or after compiling large amounts of code. I am not saying that 10 extra seconds bothers me, however I would like that the ssd performs to what I paid for.

I use the Intel Sata 6 ports never had any Asmedia drivers and have disabled the Asmedia Sata 6 ports in bios, from pushing the on button to windows loaded is 20sec but 12 sec is spent showing the Asus splash screen & 7 Sec for the windows animation where it spins and becomes a windows then it loads the screen that says welcome for 0.5-1 sec.

from what I have read it dosent get any faster on my board I also have the Intel RST drivers from 2011 installed.

My speeds are as follows with about 30% full.

Your 4k-64kThrd Write speeds are the only one thats slower

I know what you are saying, but you are putting a lot of stock in the boot speed being "what you paid for". Services loaded, etc, is more of an impact than the SSD speed - based on your AS-SSD shot the speeds are all fine except 4K write, which I doubt is a limiting factor for Windows boot speeds. Trying to judge the performance of the drive based on that single aspect is bound to yield some conflicting results.

Thread Starter 
I am using the default msachi driver and I am getting a good quick boot now. You are right Forceman that I should not judge my ssd only on boot times. I am thouroghly impressed of the performance boost the ssd has given me over my previous hdd. I also wondered why my 4k-64thrd write speeds are consistently slower than what other people are reporting. Not that this bothers me, but does anyone have a suggestion as to why this may be ? Thank you to everybody that has answered and hopefully will answer. Your help is greatly appreciated !

Try running AS-SSD again but with a single thread of Prime95 also running at the same time. Not sure what portion of the test that helps, but it does help improve the scores somewhat. Also, you can try disabling C3 and C6 in the BIOS, if they aren't already, as that can help improve performance. I think those two things actually do the same thing (which is keep the CPU from dropping into a lower power state) so maybe try the Prime95 one first.

Again, which Intel RST driver versions have you tried so far?

 

For me, I can't use any version that is newer than 10.1.0.1008 or else I end up with the same problem that you're experiencing.  When I had the Gigabyte EP45-UD3P (same solid state drives back then), I couldn't use anything newer than 10.0.0.1046.  That is, I tried 10.1.0.1008 back then and I had the same problem: a longer boot time.  Now with the P8P67 EVO, anything newer than 10.1.0.1008 results in a longer boot time.

 

So, I would really recommend trying older versions.  If you want to try 10.1.0.1008, then I still have the installer.  Actually, I would like to see what happens if you try 10.1.0.1008.

 

Also, do you have the Intel chipset driver installed?

It's a computer!

I did some tests for you on my rig (I own a samsung 830 128gb) and I don't seem to experience the issues you have, boot times are the same with Rapid storage (latest driver) and msahci, although the access times on the Rapid Storage driver are negligibly faster, there's no real world difference. So I'll just contribute in the only way I can with a screenshot ! tongue.gif
