Nova 64gb Benchmark slower than spec'd


Scripted

Recommended Posts

Hello, I recently purchased a Nova 64gb SSD and have installed windows 7 64 bit, World of Warcraft, some overclocking utilities, and have done the recommended tweaks as suggested in the forums. I currently have 28GB of free space in the hard drive and is 1 day old. However running ATTO Benchmark I get close to spec'd Writes, but the read speed falls slightly short of the spec'd 270 mb/s. Its just slightly disappointing considering I have seen many people go beyond specs with other corsair drives. I've attached an image, is this considered Normal, and if not is there any suggestions as to increase the speed? Also I have made sure TRIM is indeed enabled. Thanks! Sorry if the image is hard to see, hopefully you can see it. If not highest read is 233.422 mb/s @ 1024k

Mmm yeah I am bit new on these drives but Corsairs main website says the Nova series has "Maximum sequential read speed 270MB/second" and "Maximum sequential write speed 195 MB/second" but when you have a look around at some of the retailers selling the drives (V128, which in theory should have higher sustained transfer rates then the smaller drives aka V64) quote speeds of 215MB/s Sustained read and 195MB/s sustained Write. They go on to quote that the V64 drives run a tad slower at 215MB/s sustained read and 130MB/s sustained write. So based on those quoted values your drive appears to be doing very well.

 

I don't know if corsair has miss quoted their maximum sustained write speeds of 270mb's when it should be 215mb/s? This would make more sense? Please correct me if I am wrong :D Cheers guys,

If that is in fact true, I will be extremely upset because thats like false advertisement, and I dont just have an extra 200 dollars sitting around, but that would make me very mad. Because newegg doesn't mention anything about the 64 version being slower. Hmm. I will look into it.

Yeah I know it is a bit weird, I only noticed it when I went to order it online and the website quoted those slower speeds... They hadn't benchtested then so I assumed they quoted the speeds off the sticker on the drive itself or the contents packaged with the drive... So I am holding off on the buying atm but I am still thinking I will get the V128 regardless but it would have been nicer to have the speeds quoted :P

The Nova 64gb is specced at 270/130 (Nova 128gb 270/195) by Corsair and considering your drive is your boot-drive (which will slow it down a bit) i would say your drive speed is very good and within spec.

If you want to enable the AHCI, see topic from RAM GUY how to do it in regedit:

When you done enable it also in your bios.

 

Only one thing with the P5Q Deluxe is... the AI logo from Asus is blurry.

 

Note:: INDILINX Read and Written! the previous on.
