Stop worrying and enjoy the systems, your drives are fine.

So i got this new 960GB SSD the model is ADATA SU650 and when i test it's performance it spits out all kinds of numbers

and some seem very low compared to my other drive which is a Crucial M500 240GB...and i think the SU650 should be faster

according to this:

https://ssd.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Crucial-M500-240GB-vs-Adata-SU650-960GB/1551vsm519561

 

My computer power management mode is already set to maximum performance, my motherboard is Z87-G45 gaming from MSI

and i believe all 6 SATA connections are SATA3 / 6GBps (correct me if im wrong)

 

Here are the results:

 

 

 

Adata SU650

Crucial M500

From what i understand both of these drives are mid-range performer and they should act about the same, right?

So, what am i doing wrong? why is the performance so inconsistent and all over the place...thanks for helping guys!

Dont use userbenchmark, it really isn't great, esp when giving one number.

 

Both of these numbers seem fine. the su650 is a low end drive and dramless( i think), so the random reads really aren't that good.

so it's normal that the Q8t8 and Q32T1 read (whatever that means) numbers are that much lower on this drive you think?

the su650 is a low end dram less drives so its expected that it will do worse. Pay more if you want a faster drive.

the reason for getting this drive is to put games on it and get rid of my loud ass 1TB HDD that i used to have...so it doesn need to be cutting edge fast...slightly faster and silent is good enough...do you think it's at least a little bit faster than my seagate HDD that is now in my closet? :(

no problem :)

i'm running ATTO benchmark now and the numbers from the SU650 seem a bit faster than the M500 across the board in this benchmark:

 

Left is M500 and Right is SU650

especially on the write speed it seems a lot more consistent now...and i didn't do anything different, only used another benchmark tool...wierd

What do you think? normal? i shouldn't worry about it anymore and go play games then? :)

Hello i_build_nanosuits, 

if you want to verify the SSD as a whole, you may check the drive with the official diagnostic software of the manufacturer. This will provide you with a trustworthy result. ?
