    Hello,

    Been using this very cheap ASM1061 PCIe SATA3 card with no issues for a long while now, except for speed.

    The Vertex 4 drive can go well beyond 350MB/s reads and writes, but apparently not on this card.

    Has anyone managed to get to higher speeds on this card?

    Thanks

    It's normal for ASM1061 cards. 400MB/s on PCIE 2.0 is theoretical top for these x1 cards, but max I've seen was 350-370MB/s.

    Thanks for the info!

    To really access the disk's speed, would I have to go to a highpoint 642L or something similar?
