Slow when data is loaded 02/27/2014
Running on AMD 990fx
HDtune short stroke 1GB read pass with:
no data loaded: ~300mb/s
with data loaded @ 80% full: ~120mb/s
I understand drives respond slower with data loaded but this is ridiculous.
I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. The base read speed seems to be slightly low as the drive should perform at 450MB/s read and write out-of-box. There may be some settings that could be affecting the speed of the drive such as the SATA port not being in AHCI mode or if you are using a 3rd party SATA port/controller like Marvell or AsMedia. We are here to help and can explore your set up and see what may be the issue and work towards a proper resolution. Please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you. Please be sure to have the part in question on hand when you call.
Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.
