As far as the Cheetah, I answered that with my thoughts earlier. I think it's because the Cheetah is aligned 512B and not 4KB or 4KB emulated like the controller is probably expecting. Not much you can do about it, to be honest.
Those numbers look fine to me. Those max numbers are likely the cause of caching to the 512MB RAM on the controller. Working like it's supposed to.
