Benchmark Performance SSD Testing: AHCI vs IDE
Full article can be found Here
I thought that users here reported that having it to IDE reduced performance substantially.
Any comments from SSD users?
You can always trust a hardware site to deliver a good conclusion when they don't even know the specifications of the controller they used...
ICH10 is a SATA 2 (SATA300 controller).
Also known as 3.0 Gb/s
Maybe where the confusion lies
PC Perspective - Benchmark Performance SSD Testing: AHCI vs IDE (or perhaps not)
I lost a few (8mb/s) mb/s read/write time swapping to AHCI on my Kingston SSDNow, it's the latest Kingston SSD with trim, so if anyone's thinking of getting one, stick with IDE.
See the post above yours.
AHCI is superior to IDE for SSDs. The original benchmark site was fishy and PC
perspective confirmed that.
I tried AHCI and as well being slower, Windows lost it's snappiness that it had with IDE. I guess it's hardware dependant really, but the only way for an overclocker is to try both ways and find the max.
