mlc slc who cares with those numbers i could work magic out of a lot of software . have you tried software yet oh maybe some demuxing. and even transencoding it helps a lot I was able to get a simple dvd coding down to like 3 mins and yes lowfat i know it's cpu limited more then anything but it helps a lot i find

I wonder if HWC will do a review comparing the MLC ioXtreme and the SLC ioDrive and "conventional" SSDs.. Would be neat. ;)

Well to be honest I am disappointed w/ my results so far. Gaming isn't any faster than a single X25-M. I don't know if this is because of a CPU limitation or what. I also have a problem w/ sustained random writes. The ioXtreme writes to the drive in a similar way as EasyCo's MFT software. And it seems that IOPs will continually decrease when doing sustained writes.

EDIT: Maybe not. Ran a few more tests are the results are much better again.

Increasing PCIe increase maximum bandwidth?


PCIe bus @ 100MHz

PCIe bus @ 110MHz


The CPU is underclocked (2.4GHz) currently as I am trying to find my max bclk. But the sequential reads are considerably higher.

Your 4k's are a bit down, but overall, it seems like these cards saturate it's PCIe lanes to the full potential.

Wish I had the money for one.

I think that may be do the new way I formatted the drive or the fact that my CPU is 1.5GHz slower than the first result.

Perhaps. My real question is this, if you put the boot partition on another drive(a regular SSD or HDD), could you install Windows onto the the ioXtreme? I don't see why not in my mind, but there may be other limiting factors.
