Hi guys, I installed an Intel x25-m 80 Gib and everything seems to be fine.
But when comparing my results with a lot of people I always see that I'm scoring the lowest on the 4K-64 Thrd.
I run the Intel SSD Toolbox optimization but same results showed up.
What is the 4K-64Thrd? and how can I improve it?
Here's a my benchmark, Thanks.
I think your score might be fine. A little low but there could be a number of things affecting it. Now I ran a benchmark on mine today after not doing it for months and I'm getting a horrible score. Bios is set to achi. MS trim was working. Installed the toolbox just to try it, and running it made no difference. Any suggestions or could the drive be failing?
Go to the control panel and select Device Manager. Look for IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers. Select the controller and right click over it. You should see this:
Assuming you got the right RST version (32 vs 64 bit driver package), check your motherboard manual to see what controllers you have. Most have two. You will have different SATA ports for different controllers. If you have an Intel chipset make sure you are plugged into an Intel SATA port.
If you are not using the PCI IDE controller disable it in the BIOS.
Be careful as you might have a problem booting if you change controllers.
Somehow the configuration changed from achi to ide in the bios. I have no idea how or when. Changed it back and the score went up to 419. I was then able to install the latest RST and the score went up to 429 so I'll leave it at that. Thanks for pointing in the right direction.
4K-64Thrd refers to the speed at queue depth 64. Re you running Intel, AMD or Nvidia chipsets? Try running the latest Intel RST chipset drivers if you are on Intel chipsets. If you are not on an Intel chipset those scores are OK.
