Coup27 Posted December 27, 2015 Share Posted December 27, 2015 Hi, I got one of these for Xmas because of the advertised write speeds of 170MB/s but I am struggling to get it to do more than 100MB/s. I have an i5 Haswell with an Asus H87I-PLUS mobo, 8GB of RAM and a Samsung 850 EVO. I'm still on Windows 7 for now but I have installed Asus AI Suite 3 which has a USB 3 boost module in it which enables either turbo mode or UASP but there is no option for UASP, only turbo mode. In normal mode I get reads of ~300MB/s and writes of ~100MB/s but in turbo mode I get reads of ~400MB/s and writes of ~100MB/s. Interesting that the reads in turbo mode are 100MB/s more than the advertised speed. The writes aren't improving though. Any ideas? Thanks.
