slow Force 3


The Ernst

Recommended Posts

I have the exact same problem with my Force Series 3 120GB. My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R. I've installed the newest drivers and also verified that the SSD is indeed running on SATA 600.

 

Does anyone have a solution to this problem? My Force Series 2 gave me better performance than this.

Tried updating the drivers a second time and it helped a little bit .Atto now gives me a maximum of 400 MB/s while reading and 225 MB/s while writing. AHCI is enabled and drivers and BIOS should be up to date, however the performance is way to low considering it should be >500 MB/s

Please fill in your complete system specifications into your dropdown menu as requested at registration. It is impossible to assist you properly without them.

 

Also:

This is much faster on read than a Force2 drive. However, your speeds are about right for the current Marvell controllers. They are not capable of running the Force 3 drives at their full operating specifications. The only chipsets so far capable of this are the P67 - B3, H67 - B3, and Z68 chipsets.

The AMD 850 chipsets are close in performance to some of the Intel's also.

From what I have read at other forums, it appears that the majority (if not all) of the stability and BSOD issues with the sandforce 2000 controller are with the Intel boards. I don't know if that is the case with Corsair's drives and findings though.

 

I also don't know much about this other than just reading in a couple of threads about it, nothing official at all and this might wind up being a goose chase . Just saying be cautious - remember the sandybridge recall. Whatever the issue is, it does seem to be elusive at this point.
