    Samsung Magician V 4.7 for Win 10

    Support for Win10 is not listed in the changelog for this release. And from what I read stuff like rapid etc do not work in Win10

    ASUS X99 Motherboard Series - Official Support Thread

    Hi, the Asus website is confusing when it comes to memory support. Looking at for example at their X99-A mainboard specifications we see that it does not support ECC memory, but that we should also refer to the Memory QVL. So we go into Support > Memory Support and click on the "X99 Series DRAM...

    Samsung XP 941 vs SM 951. What am I doing wrong?

    Default I/O size in HD Tune us only 64KB, increase it to 8MB and you should see a big increase. It's also worth noting that if you don't perform a "full test" on the same options/benchmark page it's known to cause iffy numbers with SSD's. Remember that HD Tune was developed for mechanical hard...

    Enterprise hard drive for desktop use?

    If you want a quiet 15k RPM drive I can recommend the Cheetah 15k.7 drives, I have one and it's at least way more silent than a WD Raptor 10k RPM drive. That said it's a SAS drive so you need a SAS controller for it...

    Samsung 840 EVO Performance Restoring Firmware Only Partially Effective

    Report your issue to Samsung, because they are playing the game of holding their hands to their ears and pretending there exists no problem: Q: Will there be a firmware update for the other Samsung TLC-based SSD models that have also demonstrated this read performance issue? If so, which models...

    Intel SSD 730 Series 480GB benchmark request

    EnderW: It would be interesting to see if the physical sector size can be changed on your 730 like it can on the S3500, they are the same drives after all. I don't have high hopes though, Intel is famous for not updating "old" drives firmware. It's probably the best option for forcing Windows to...

    SM951 (first?) benchmark

    Surprise surprise: Intel's "new" NVMe based SSD 750 1.2TB is beat by the Samsung SM951 AHCI drive in all relevant consumer tests in Anandtech's review Well, it was not a surprise for me, except it does show much better numbers than what I pieced together intitally. But then I found this, look...

    SM951 (first?) benchmark

    Don't you see the error in your own text? I wrote in my initial post that transfer speed is 321KB/sec for the 1.6TB P3700 when doing small I/O's How much less consistent do you need the performance to be for you to accept it's bad?

    SM951 (first?) benchmark

    ToddW2, please this isn't about performance at higher queue depths or I/O transfer sizes. I said in my initial post "It's a benchmark which highlights performance of a corner case: IO performance at transfer sizes below 4KB." All I'm trying to do is confirm if Intel are wrong in their...
