sata/300 vs 600

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have my Windows 7 installed on my sata/300. It works great, boot time, and using windows goes very efficient.

I have my sata/600 where I install my games and applications.

Does it make any difference in efficiency having the games and apps installed on the sata/600 when the OS is on sata/300. Should I have installed the OS on the sata/600?

My Windows Experience Index gives me 7.4 for my SSD, my highest score is my GPU 7.6.

Benchmark:

OCZ sata/300:


Seq: 185 read, 50 write
512K: 170 read, 53 write
4K: 8 read, 13 write
4K: 55 read, 48 write
QD32

Samsung sata/600:

Seq: 244 read, 225 write
512K: 168 read, 212 write
4K: 19 read, 58 write
4K: 120 read, 106 write
QD32

I see my board only supports up to 300. But in case of future hardware upgrades...

It's called SATA 3Gb/s and SATA 6Gb/s.


Which OCZ and Samsung SSD?
What motherboard (or better yet... which SATA controllers)? If they are both native controllers, you can just move your SSDs around without issue.


The sequential performance really does not matter that much for consumers to be honest.

OCZ-Vertex 60 GB
Samsung SSD 830 Series 128 GB

MSI 790FX-GD70, supporting 3 GB, but the question is in case of future upgrades?

SATA controllers? The ones on the main board. I installed W7 in AHCI mode.

I used to run W7 on a old SATA 1.5 GB, that was really sluggish, took ages to install apps, boot etc.

Your Vertex SSD is a SATA II (SATA 3Gb/s) drive, so won't be any faster on a SATA III (SATA 6Gb/s) port.

Game loading time depends on the game. If it uses large files then it would load faster from a SATA III SSD and port.

Vertex is a SATA 3Gb/s so it won't improve on a SATA 6Gb/s port.

That motherboard has THREE SATA controllers:
• 6 SATA II (1~6) ports by AMD® SB750
• 2 SATA II (7~8) ports by JMicron® JMB322
• 1 eSATA port by JMicron® JMB362



Use to run what on SATA 1.5Gb/s? A SSD or HDD? Boot times are not really affected on only SATA 1.5Gb/s since most of the disk access is random, not sequential.

Obvoiusly yes, but would W7 perform better on my SATA III vs SATA II? And will my games and apps benefit being installed on my SATA III vs SATA II. And would it matter on what disk the OS is installed, I mean because the OS is on my SATA II, games and apps "would not" benefit being on SATA III as much if both OS and games/apps where on my SATA III.
