im having a bit of problem here, i bought mushkin enhanced chronos 120gb sata 3 6 gb/s SSD, so i installed it in my G53sw-a1, and installed a fresh windows 7 on it..... the problem is the intel 6 series c200 (HM65 chipset) supports sata 3 6 gb/s, but i get the sata 2 3 gb/s speeds (200 MB/s read/135 MB/s write) i dont know why??
the ssd speeds are up to 550 MB/s read and 540 MB/s write and i've read some reviews on it and other users get around 400 MB/s read and write.
* in case you're wondering it's installed on the second sata port which supports 6 gb/s speeds and the the original seagate 750gb 7200 rpm hdd is on the first port.
** and there is something i dont really get, intel says the chipset supports two 6 gb/s drives or six 3 gb/s devices.
i dont get this point at all. do they mean if i have three devices connected to the sata ports all of them are going to run on 3 gb/s speed or the first two ports support 6 gb/s speed and the other four ports going to run on 3 gb/s speed regardless of how many ports are being used???
by the way the third port is being used by the dvd drive.
and i dont know if im using the intel AHCI DRIVERS OR MICROSOFT AHCI DRIVERS, the "as ssd" program says "msahci", but i really dont know
