Built myself a brand new system with new sandisk extreme 240gb sata 3 SSD.
Now because my whole system is new I am unsure if it is the drivers, firmware, controller on the mobo or maybe SSD is performing as it should be.
I used Intel sata 3 controller on maximus v gene mobo to connect the drive. set to AHCI in bios.
didn’t do much testing yet but read speeds were above 400MB (great) and write speeds were 220MB.
Drive is advertised ar read and write around 500MB.
Drive had 80GB filled when tested. I want to know is this normal or should I investigate further (firmware drivers etc.)
Thank you for any help you can provide,
