    winsat r/w results for SSD worse than SATA hard drive?

    drbeamer

      Running winsat in win7 on my PC's SATA drive shows approx 104 Mb/s seq read and 113 Mb/s seq write.

       

      After running winsat on the new Intel 530 Series 120GB SSD the results drop to 34 Mb/s seq read, and 29 Mb/s seq write.

       

      How is it possible that the SSD is so much slower than the old SATA drive? Does this indicate a bad SSD?
