Low Minimum Transfer Rate 116.3MB/s


Recommended Posts

I just bought a new computer with the following specs -


*Corsair 120GB SSD, 2.5", Force Series 3, SATAIII, Read 500MB/s, Write 510MB/s

* 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 Kit, PC-12800

*Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3 Z68, 4DDR3, 1333, RAID, GBLAN, 2PCIE16, SATA3, USB3, ATX, HDM

*Intel Core i5 2500K (3.30Ghz)


I have done a fresh install of Windows 7 (64bit) and I am running the drive in AHCI mode via the SATA 3 ports.


I noticed my performance does not seem to be at what it should be and after running some tests with HD Tune Pro I seem to be getting a huge fluctuation in Read Speeds with it often dropping under 150 MB/s




This is compared to what most reviews of the drive are getting which have a steady Max/Min Read speed and mostly up in the 300 MB/s.


For Example Guru3D's Review



Most other reviews reflect the same result.


Does any one have any idea why this would be the case?
