    I purchased the new Vertex 3 120gb and did a clean install and did a bootcamp with win 7, 40gb partition on win7 and the rest on Mac.. im not sure with the results since this is my first SSD but the results seems a bit iffy imo the test is done in windows 7

    I think that would be caused by AHCI not being enabled for Windows. With AHCI enabled the scores will be a lot better. AHCI is enabled for OS X btw. The ssd should be fast enough to not notice the difference though. I wouldn't worry.

    Hi thank you
    i don't know if it is enabled but i will do a check... i have another question
    i partition 40gb to Bootcamp and the rest of the 80gb to Mac.. will this effect the performance in windows since i only have like 7-8gb left of the 40gb i partitioned... i also enable TRIM in my bootcamp, will it cause anything with my
    Mac's partition??

    hmm after a few searches on google seems like i can only enable AHCI through BIOs which i cant obviously since its on a MBP.. is there any solutions to this?
