Re: Supports or is...

Just some things to check:

1) Are you running the SATA controller in AHCI mode (should be)

2) Are you using the Microsoft or Intel SATA driver (ideally should be Intel)

3) If you use a hard drive speed test utility such as HD Tach, you should be able to determine what SATA interface speed you have.  For example, my SATA3 Intel controller with my Samsung 830 series SSD shows a burst speed of ~500MB/s which is clearly SATA3.

Also, what make/model SSD did you purchase?  Some are faster than others.


1) It is on AHCI mode

2) I don't know, could be Intel SATA, but my laptop is bad that i can't find more details about each part or ports i have, it is supporting SATA3 but never tell if it uses SATA3 fully or what type of SATA3 it is.

3) I will try one utility and see what i can get.

My SSD is Samsung 840 Pro series 512GB
