    The storage test should be first. They've dragged *ss for two years on this.

    Try just using the Microsoft NVMe driver built into Windows. Just uninstall the Samsung driver and the Windows driver will load on the next boot. I haven't had an issue with Win 2016 and NVMe but...

    You are scratching the surface but you need to peel back the layers with SSDs.

    I have an IX. When I got it there were only two in the world. The one Areca had at the Computex booth and the one they handed me. The drivers are still funky so I haven't been able to set any records...

    Everything goes up when you choose high performance. It also looks like you have Link Power Management on in the BIOS for the PCIe lanes.

  7. New Marvell Controller, PCIe 2.0 x4

    CES 2014 Just days ago we tested the ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer with a PCIe 2.0 x2 m.2 socket. In that preview article we used a SanDisk A110 PCIe based m.2 drive, but that's old news now. Just...

    Thanks for the update. If you ever have time to do something custom let me know. There are a few ideas I have about automation and a series of tests that your software can run but it takes a lot of...

    It expires in a few hours and I have a whole heap of SSDs to test this week before CES.

    Also, M.2 to PCIe 2x adapters will get really cheap, maybe 30 Dollars. Plextor will have M6 at CES in M.2 form factor and I know they are in production, at least in limited quantities. The cool thing...

    In short, all it's doing is passing along PCIe signals. M.2 and M.3 (AKA NGFF, I still like NGFF better for a name) are PCIe and so is SATA Express.

    This hold is really has to do with the PCH....

    It's because one has more data on it than the other. The data gets stacked on the fast part of the drive. As you fill it the data gets put on slower areas of the platter.

    You might be able to...

    SandForce drives are good because you keep high performance for a longer period without TRIM. Once you run through the clean blocks they start to slow and can get really slow with a lot of...

    PFSense for sure. You can also find enterprise DNS / DHCP servers on EBay pretty cheap. I bought a 1u DNS server and ended up installing PFSsense anyhow. Check out some of the Bluecat Networks and IP...

    There are a few P67 boards that support LSI RAID cards but very few from that era. I noticed that ASUS just added LSI support for a few Z87 boards.

    Your motherboard's mSATA is electrically SATA II. Motherboards based on Z87 will use SATA III mSATA slots.

    We discuss the issue in nearly every mSATA review at TweakTown. An article about your...

    Z87 boards will be the first with SATA III mSATA. Older boards used SATA II for the mSATA connectors so that's something to keep in mind for everyone else.

    mSATA drives are almost always...

    That cable won't help you at all. You need a special cable that is somewhat rare and somewhat expensive when you find it. There are only a couple of drives in the world that even use the technology. ...

    No comment for the reviewer that doesn't know how to test his samples. A little over your head maybe?

    You have data on the drives you are testing. SSDs slow as you put data on them. The more data you have, the slower they get. That's why TweakTown tests SSDs with data on them.

    Here take a look. :...
