[QUOTE=MrCointelPro;2569364]No its not very informative[/quote]Sorry you didn’t like the information.
I have an ATOM N330 ION system, and the Vertex 2 manages 48Mb/s with copy and paste.
I clearly state the operating system and specs of the PC used for the review, and yes it is very much more powerful than an ATOM.
This seriously had me laughing out loud. You’re not measuring what the Vertex 2 is capable of, only what your ATOM can deliver.
Windows 7 results are accurate and they are what they are. It has little to do with fancy caching on Win7, it’s all to do with how Win7 aligns at the data boundaries. Again the explanation in the review clearly explains this.
From the review
Partition alignment and sector boundaries
Windows 7 will automatically align a partition during partition creation, Windows XP wonâ€™t. It is imperative that an SSDs partition is aligned. Windows XP is also restricted to sector boundaries, while Windows 7 will use 4k boundaries if it can. The SandForce SSD controller is 4k boundary aware, and will use these boundaries when it can. Of course it will also remap LBAâ€™s for compatibility with the sector boundaries so the drive can be used with Windows XP.
IOMeter allows us to set the sector boundaries for conducting the tests, and we have therefore set the sector boundaries at 4K, which means the IOMeter tests are valid for Windows 7 and Windows Vista users. [B]XP users will not be able to obtain such results[/B].
No tweaks are required for Vertex 2 when running on Windows 7.
I don’t have a rig old enough to be running XP. XP is an old OS, and never has, and never will be optimized for SSD.
