Wildfire 120GB bad Performance issues
I have the above SSD drive, I can't seam to get good performance out of it, what could be the cause and how could I improve it ?
Core i7 950
Gigabyte x58a-ud5 rev.2 f3 BIOS
Wildfire 120GB Firmware 5.0.1 (connected to Marvell 9128 SATA 6GB controller)
2.5TB WD Green
Windows 7 64bit (ultimate) Updated + Driver updated
Attached my ATTO benchmark:
The marvell 9128 is the cause of your reduced performance. You either need an expensive, high bandwidth RAID card, or an Intel P67/Z68 based motherboard to see the best benchmarks from this drive. Both of these are expensive options that you won't see a huge gain from.
