I really want to see the Agility 60GB's performance compared to the X25-V, since those are my two main options.

I'm trying to find some information about what chipset, and specifically what hard drive controller chip the Athlon Neo platform has... (your sig laptop)

EDIT: Well I found the northbridge is a M780G, so I guess the SB will be SB710 or SB750...

I can tell you right now that your Write performance numbers will probably be slower then the equivalent Intel ICH10 chip... but you probably already knew that.

EDIT: Do you have access to the laptop and CPU-Z or something that says what chipset it has?

No, I'm actually ordering it tomorrow, and the SSD (and second RAM DIMM) soon after. Then it's about a week or two to arrive. That's why I'm dithering so much about what SSD to get. I know I want one, as I'm pretty sure it will do more for my performance than a slightly faster CPU or extra GB of RAM, and reduce power consumption to boot. But I want the best bang for my buck.


What about the Kingston and PNY 64GB units?

I didn't know that actually, thanks. This is a bit outside my area of expertise.

Well definitely will increase your performance the most compared to CPU/RAM

Regarding the Kingston and PNY units, if either of them are Indilinx or Intel based then they will get good performance, I don't think Kingston is doing a Sandforce drive at the moment...

It's mainly the controller that makes the difference between drives, then secondly it's the controller firmware... so you see you want a company that gives a poop about their customers so you get FW updates... not sure about PNY's history there, I know Kingston has done what they can...

OCZ obviously rules the roost in random forum-based support, with lots of FW revisions, lots of interesting posts and such, in my book Intel rules from a performance, and "conventional" support standpoint...

However the Sandforce drives (while a little pricey at the moment) have shown better results in some cases then the Intel ones...

I think there should be some kind of law, requiring all SSDs on Newegg to list:

Controller
Firmware
Sequential Read/Write
Random Read/Write
Access Time
Power consumption idle/active


I swear, it would make this 50x easier.

I have a few questions, shorter than making my own thread, i'll probably get a quicker reply in this thread

I have just ordered an X25-M G2 80GB SSD, should be arriving tomorrow.
Now i keep reading all these threads saying the sata configuration in bios needs to be set to AHCI.

I have an 890FXA-UD7, and I currently have several drives in raid.

Bios options for the UD7 =

Modes: IDE, RAID, AHCI

I have it set to RAID (So my current drives can run in raid..)
I also have SATA ports 4,5 (different option) set to IDE (It doesn't have AHCI option) for my sata dvd drive.

I was wondering how i would go about having a functioning SSD (AHCI) with a RAID setup on my board?.. From what i can tell from the threads i've read, AHCI is required? If i change RAID to AHCI, i cannot raid my drives, infact the raid bootup options don't even exist if it's not on RAID.

Goal:
SSD - OS, Music, Apps
Raid0 drives - Games
External - Movies, Storage

Any suggestions/information is appreciated.

It doesn't really matter all that much, to be honest. If your storage configuration needs to be set to RAID mode, don't sweat it. Just make sure your SSD is your primary boot drive.
I wouldn't agree with your priorities though. It should go:
SSD: OS, primary Applications, and primary Games
RAID 0: Secondary applications, secondary games
External: Movies, Music, Various Storage.
Use your SSD where it shines.

Well I'm really disappointed. I thought I did a bunch of research that said this was a pretty good drive for the price.



Newegg link

Hrm, odd thing. This doesn't show up in my list of purchased items on newegg and the reivew I wrote for it about a month ago is gone.

Hmm just checked your entry, had to clean up significant errors, if you post more results, please check them...

Apart from the Write score being the read access time, the Read/Write access times were reversed, and offset text color was green (was red in screenshot)... anyway I've cleaned up all those issues

I'm now going back to check all the other entries lol

Regarding the fresh install, yes it would realign the partitions during Windows Setup, but you need to actually delete all the existing partitions on that drive, then just choose the drive and install to it, Windows will automatically generate the required partitions with correct offsets.
Thanks for the fix
Just got a new ssd 80gb, will post soon...What should I do with my 25-v now?
