    yes! I've just installed a vertex 2 myself, and i'm getting better results but still 100mb/s below what they should be. however, i've got a 17" i5.

    let it get adjusted w/ the new system. that should help but i have no idea if it is normal to have 100MB/s discrepancies.

    It needs time to adjust? Does it have to make friends with CPU and RAM and be well enough accepted into this new friend circle before it gives 100% :p?

    It might have to do w/ system caching and indexing for optimal speed though it does seem strange w/ the 100MB of speed. though the advertised speed is the MAX speed. it won't always transfer at that speed. it should transfer at around 200-230 MB/s though.
    EDIT: speeds also seem to vary based on the amount of data being written/read. proof in this link and this link gives further proof. you just didn't read the number in your test right. your speeds are in line w/ what it should be.

    Thats really odd. Let us know if it improves.

    Ah, thanks for the heads up! But aren't our results still way lower than what they show there? What gives?

    I've also been timing my boots, and they went from 20 seconds the first time, now down to 12. Maybe it will get faster?

    yeah, that might be the "adjustment" i was talking about. it seems like the core i5 and the ram and the new ssd are getting along quite well now.
