Vertex 3 Performance - 250MB/s read speed

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have just installed my Vertex 3 120GB SSD into my Gigabyte P67A-UD7-B3 based system. It isn't my boot drive, and I have tried plugging it into both the 6GB/s P67 chipset and the 6GB/s Marvell chipset Sata3 connectors. In both cases the the read performance as reported by HDTune comes in at around 250MB/sec. I'm expecting close to double this based on the same tests that I've read in reviews.

The performance reads about the same as the other SSD in the system - the Intel X-25M 160GB SSD, which I have connected to the Sata2 (3GB/s) connectors.

The OS is Windows 7 Pro, and the BIOS is set to AHCI for all SATA connections. The Mobo is updated to the latest available firmware (F3).

Does anybody have any thoughts on this?

Replying to my own thread. Ran the AS SSD test. The results are more about what I would expect....
