View Full Version : SATA settings

I have a NVMe for my OS and a firecuda for my data drive. The performance of the NVMe is good, but I wonder about my data drive performance.


I noticed the SATA controller is set to Intel RST. Should this be changed to AHCI or is my performance on par?

Would need the model number of the drive, but the numbers look ball park. Changing to ACHI isn't likely going to net you any additional performance, but you can always try and see for yourself.
