A bit steep for a sandforce drive but that rebate puts it right in line. Not bad but it's just another sandforce for the most part.

Let me reinstall Windows on it and I'll verify it for you.

Please come back soon.

I want a drive with a 7.9.

That'll leave me with getting 7.9 from my CPU(7.7). Everything else is already there.


I heard Crucial Real SSDs have 7.9. The bigger ones anyway.

Thanks for the response, have you had the time to reinstall and check yet?

My SSD yields a 7.3, before and after doing SSD tweaks and whatnot.

But I'm curious if it's the chipset in my laptop that's not letting it go higher.

The Patriot Inferno scores 7.7!

Right, I know a Vertex 2 scores a 7.7 as well. I already have a cpu with 7.7 but I want all 7.9s



After more review I'm debating on waiting or not. Looks like the new controllers due out the beginning of the year have the potential to kick some serious ass.

I don't have data for the C400 real drive yet, but the Sandforce 2000 controller has started production and is expected to have 500MB/s read/writes. I just hope the prices aren't bad. I might still pick up a drive in the mean time.


Additionally, SF-2000 SSD Processors feature:

announced the availability of the SF-2000 Family of SSD Processors optimized for SSDs deployed in mission-critical Enterprise and Industrial computing applications. These chips feature a 6 Gigabit-per-second SATA host interface, industry applauded DuraClass™ Technology, an unprecedented 60,000 sustained random read/write IOPS (Input-output Operations Per Second) and sustained sequential read/write performance of 500 Megabytes per second. In addition to state-of-the-art performance, reliability, security, and Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) connectivity enhancements, the SF-2000 family supports single-level, multi-level, and enterprise multi-level cell (SLC, MLC, & eMLC) NAND Flash families from all major suppliers with its high-speed ONFi2 and Toggle Flash interface.

Support for advanced 30nm- and 20nm-class Flash with Asynch/ONFi2/Toggle interfaces with data rates up to 166 Mega Transfers per second
Enhanced dual-ported SAS bridge support, including non-512-byte sector sizes, e.g., 520, 524, 528, 4K, etc., with Data Integrity Field (DIF) for true Enterprise-class SAS drive behavior and performance
TCG Enterprise security with selectable multi-banded 256/128-bit AES encryption with line-rate double encryption for data written to the drive
Advanced ECC engine correcting up to 55 bits per 512-byte sector to assure high data integrity and support for future generations of Flash memory
Power and performance throttling options to support green computing initiatives
Industrial temperature support (-40 to +85 degrees Celsius)


Was looking at it some more. With the new drives coming out, the inferno is starting to look better as a for now drive.
At least I'm thinking the red would match well with my motherboard.
I know the Vertex 2 puts up a 7.7 as well.
