I've told and showed you over various threads that that's not true. I have an 850 PRO that I upgraded from the EXM01B6Q FW to the EXM02BQ FW via the bootable ISO and it's performing flawlessly.

Here's my benchmark i just ran:



Your issue is most likely SATA controller driver related, it can make a big difference sometimes.

Can j00 post your AS SSD Benchmark and CrystalDiskMark and I'll show j00 my scores before I upgraded the bloody firmware?

 

Mind you this was on an Alienware 18 laptop not a desktop

And you never believed me...

 

Here are my scores before the firmware update.

 

After the firmware updates the scores went down by 15% I didn't even want to save them.

 

Mind you, these scores are on a laptop!!!

 

AS SSD Benchmark with IRST 12.0.7.1002 (W7)

 

 

 

CrystalDiskMark with IRST 12.0.7.1002 (W7)

I never said i didn't believe you were getting lower speeds. I'm saying that its not the FW's fault. I've only seen one other person complain on lower speed after the FW update through ISO. He was on Tom's Hardware around the time everyone was reporting the bricking through Magician. He later updated his post saying that he Secure Erased the SSD, reinstalled the OS, and his speeds went back to normal.

My advice would be to find a newer IRST driver for that laptop, and don't go based on the Manufacturer's website. Find out what Intel Chipset you have and go to Intel's website and go to their downloads page for IRST and frind a newer driver that supports your Chipset. Note: the one i have, 14.6, only suports Intel Chipset series 8 and up. If you have a 7 series chipset, the highest you can go is either 13.1 or 13.2. earlier than series 7, you gotta look at the driver's read me txt's.

Keeping in mind the fact that I'm on an old motherboard using SATA II ports, how are the Intel SATA SSDs? They look insane...and expensive...but insane!

I have a Samsung 850 Pro 512gb in a Rampage III Extreme(sata 2) set up, very fast for my needs.
