Mind you, these scores are on a laptop!!!AS SSD Benchmark with IRST 184.108.40.2062 (W7)
CrystalDiskMark with IRST 220.127.116.112 (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.
