Did u enable trim? or is it enabled on its own? I got a Corsair Force Series 3 180GB.....not the GT but its a SATAIII I'm only getting read/write of 189/180.....far below 550/520ish advertised....i used blackmagic app from Mac App Store to test.....I don't have any extra settings enabled like file vault 2 or anything, but its what it is...Hello,
I just installed my Corsair Force GT (60 GB) drive and the speeds are horrible. I am getting 88 write and 330 read which is much slower than the advertised speed. Any advice? Also TRIM is enabled on this drive.
Those are probably burst speeds and you're test is giving you sustained speeds which will be much lower typically.It's not so great if the manufacturer promises 550 MB/s read and probably 300-400 MB/s write speeds.
My sata II apple ssd has about 180-190 write and 210 read, but I just ran the benchmark once or twice.
