Re: SanDisk Extreme Pro® SSD

there could be many different reasons why you are not seeing the fill speed, SATA chipset, SATA driver, disk not aligned etc. Contact sandisk support and they should be able to help you sort it out.

Re: SanDisk Extreme Pro® SSD

If we knew what mother board you were using, we could then determine if it is the limiting factor, which it is most of the time.


Saying you never see more than 395MB/s read and write speeds is almost worthless without telling us what benchmark or other measure of IO speed you used.
