SSD Interface Comparison: PCI Express vs SATA - Page 8

post #71 of 182
Last night I'm also try to install Intel Rapid Storage Driver instead of Microsoft one as Tom's Hardware mention that MS driver in Windows 8 have poor performance compare to Intel and Windows 7 Ref. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
,Here are my result using IRST Driver.





I'm repeat the test many times and clearly IRST do better.


I'm install IRST by going to device manager and

1. update driver and choose Browse my computer for driver.

2. manual pick the driver and click "have disk" in my case I'm pick IRST driver.

3. pick Intel Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller.


Be careful if you use M6e as system drive after do this and restart you will not able to boot back to Windows 8 you need to make your on board native controller use Stoachi (if it use IRST) before restart or else you have to repair HDC in Hiren Boot CD.


In Device Manager it should look like this before you restart to prevent problem

>IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers

Inter(R) Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller (M6e controller)

Standard SATA AHCI Controller (your mainboard sata controller).


Try with your own risk. I has to spend more than 3 hours find out above solution.

I wouldn't use msahci in ANY OS either.

Just want to share my experience with IRST + M6e after a week using Plextor M6e (LiteOn LGT) 256GB with IRST driver there are no problem so far except fast-startup feature in windows 8.1 not working.

I also just try install IRST interface to see if it work(**see note below**), and the result are good really good actually IRST interface working perfect like when it on intel own chipset and you also can use it to disable LPM as well with really impressive result.

Here are some screenshot from me









After disable LPM using IRST interface score is even better as you can see on screenshot from AS SSD above, 4K and Acc.time is a bit better then when LPM is enable, burst rate in HD Tune is better and much more constant as well.

But the real advantage is disk intensive task such as anti-virus scan / anti-malware scan is perform better too.



***Note : Install IRST driver for your M6e and make it work and able to boot into Windows first (see how-to in my early post). then install IRST Interface after installer finish "don't" press restart now but go to device manager and roll back driver on your intel sata controller first(and make sure you have only irst driver on M6e controller) then restart.****


Please note that only use IRST version 12.8.0.1016 for problem free experience it's the only one that work flawlessly in my experiment. because if you use newer version you will face BSOD with peauth.sys error and if you use too old version you will not able to boot to Windows 8.1 anyway.

haha :D

 

I'm going to try getting my hands on some more PCIe and M.2 drives more once I get my system updated. Then I should start having some real speed!

HOLY... WOW... OMG...

Show me the 4K random speeds.... drool.gif

The IOPs are insane... so the review uses ATTO but not AS SSD... doh.gif
