Yes, if I had added the files and done a restart the 2nd score would of been higher, but still lower than the initial base test. As you add more and more files the drive will slow down. But as you delete files the TRIM command restores your drive to it's optimal condition again.

So if your sata is running in AHCI mode, change it back to IDE, then run the update CD or USB you make, and when done don't forget to turn AHCI back on.

Ok, I did the 1.5 update. My problem is that my AHCI was off and mine is set to IDE. Do I need AHCI?

Here is my 30gb Vertex, post 1.5 firmware update. Hmmm, the score is lower:/ Any idea why its not higher?

Yes. They will always run better with more free space. See here:

Which SSD to buy?

That's why my first score was so high. The only thing written/stored on the drive at that time was the data written by AS SSD.

Enabling AHCI should improve your score a bit.

Odd. I just re-ran the test for the **** of it. I have more programs open than last time, and slightly less HD space. My score went up 7 points

Well my system suddenly wouldn't update so I did a re-install of Win 7 and used the AHCI Driver. This is with just Windows 7 and the Benchmark loaded

Curious, has anyone put 2 or more SSD's in RAID0 and run this test?

Hey there,

saw the question for RAIDed SSD's so i ran my two Patriots.

Its the Torqx M28 128GB (PTX128GS25SSDR) in RAID 0. Not too bad for a MLC SSD.
