yep, same with the rating of the processor, much like how cars are rated. lets take a step into the automotive world and define a horse power. horse power = work done over time. now, back in the day, automotive manufactures used their own methods of defining and testing/rating horsepower, but that has changed. since car manufactures were often overrating their own cars, customers became overly unsatisfied about the actual preformance vs rated preformance. so along came quality control, and made a standarized test to accuratley rate horsepower amongst all cars. now how does this relate to pc's u might ask: simple, intel has their own tests that they favor because they make the processor seem like its faster than it realy is, same with amd all the other cpu makers. the reason i bring this up, is that maby some guy in the bigtime might read this and apply the same concept: make one universal test for all cpu's that test every extremity of the manufactures cpu's so u can accuratley compare the processors advantages/dissadvantages in all tasks like mem write, mem read, etc...all that cpu testing crap. there ive made my point ^_^
ummmmmmm All weird Intel is Evil AMD Fanboyish conspiracy theories aside, this was an independent test, performed using parts that are on the market, using independent benchmarking software, performed by an independent tester. Intel didn't supply any specs, or perform any biased test, **** they aren't even intel motherboards, they're ASUS motherboards with Intel chipsets. Did ya even look at it?

Besides, it explains why its so high:

With the exception of the write speed test, the chipsets' Serial ATA performance is pretty similar in HD Tach. The P965/ICH8R combo only scores that high in HD Tach's 8MB zone test, not in the longer variable zone test. That higher average is a little deceptive, too. Here's what HD Tach's output looks like with the P965 and ICH8R.

Write speeds are all over the map when they should be tracking smoothly like read speeds. According to Intel, the problem is specific to the Caviar RE2. However, we've observed similar performance from other command queuing-equipped drives on the ICH8R, suggesting that the problem may not be limited to the RE2, but instead related to the interaction of the ICH8R and HD Tach's 8MB zone test.
