CMFSSD64N firmware update?


Hendrik

Recommended Posts

Hi, does anybody know where to get (and how to read out the actual) firmware of a CMFSSD64N drive. It is always said to have the latest one running but I don't know what is the latest one and where to get it.

 

Btw: I am quite happy with the drive (transferspeeds!) but it slows down much while doing multiple operations at one time (when using it as a system drive)

 

Thanks to anyone who let me something know :-)

Thanks for your quick reply!

Do you think they are still developing updates, are any planned or under construction?

As mentioned multiple access really slows down the drive and funnywise it is only under windows not mac! (Macbook with bootcamp partition - maybe can this be the answer?)

I know of no updates and I am using that same drive on one of my systems with Windows XP on an AMD Phenom 9500 and ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe MB and have had no problems at all in fact its amazingly faster then any spinning HDD I have had on it, if you have the drive partitioned that may be complicating the problem.

 

The only issue I ran into was when I tried to installed SP3 it crashed so I keep it at SP2 I suspect it has to do with the driver for the chipset, but have not had a lot of time to fully check it out and with SP2 its stable and fast.

Think you are totally right. The OS (with its different chipset/sata drivers) seems to be very important for SSD speeds. As said under mac it is so much faster compared to vista (on bootcamp partition). I also heard - now for several times - that SSDs (in general) speed up XP (booting time / system response) a lot but don't speed up much vista.

I have not seen any official tests, but some users were telling me that with the Windows 7 RC1, the whole install and the boot up times to get into the OS were greatly improved when using SSD as compared to their older HDDs. I believe Vista has some SSD optimizations, but Windows 7 should be able to take much more advantage of SSD performance.
