840 EVO 250GB - Benchmark ok?

5 posts in this topic

On my Seq getting 386.1 MB /s

Is it supposed to be faster than that?

I have battlefield 4 installing in the background so might that be slowing it down?

an using mobo asrock 970 extreme4

All other reviews appear to show it should be over 400 MB/s....

Using CrystalDiskMark :

Testing a drive used as primary will always be slower than secondary.

my 840 pro is primary and gets numbers very close to advertised. I think the is probably due to my op at close to 25%. I did the same thing to my old 830(secondary) and it is actually getting numbers slightly higher than advertised. so maybe try op and see what happens.

I have a 250GB EVO as the Primary (OS) drive on an Intel MB with an i5-2500k (stock clocks) Win 8.1 pro. Here are the numbers I get with Intel Rapid Storage Technology Drivers v12.9.0.1001:

What AHCI or RAID drivers are you running on your ASRock Extreme 4 MB? You are running the drive in AHCI or RAID mode, correct? If you run the drive in ATA mode then the performance will be lower.

Having an app installing in the background would definitely degrade performance. Re-running the benchmark when the rest of the system is idle would be strongly recommended to get a realistic benchmark.
