    Intel Rapid Storage Technology RAID 0 array swapping between 6GB/s and 3GB/s

    RichyD

      I'm getting some strange behaviour from my Intel RAID 0 Array.


      I have an MSI GT70 2OD Laptop, that has a RAID 0 array of 3 SSD Drives.

      However the whole RAID Array keeps switching between 6GB/s and 3GB/s transfer rate.


      This typically occurs when powering on the machine or awaking from sleep.

      It appears to be caused by the 3rd SSD of the array (all the other drives in the Array stay at 6GB/s, but the 3rd one jumps between 6GB/s and 3GB/s)


      Its been in to MSI Support 3 times, but they seem to think it is working as expected! (and its driving me up the wall).


      The HD Tune results run at 50% speed when its being detected as 3GB/s


      Any idea why this would occur, is this normal behavour?

      Is this a software issue, or a hardware issue?


      Mank thanks for any help.
