Thanks for the help, which item on the Iometer list do I download please to run??
Please look in your system what version you have. This is how you do.
1 - Access Control Panel
2 - Select the option the says System.
3 - Once you click on it, you will be able to see all the information on your system so you can install the right version.
*You can try installing a 32 bit version. Let us know if this worked.
Windows 8.1 64 bit ??
The download you suggested does not work
'This app can't run on your PC'
Did you look at the 2 HD benching test results I attached ??
Please download X86-64 (windows) IOMeter, and try to run it. At least on my system it works properly, but IA64 can not...
I would like to suggest you to remove one graphics card or audio card before test.
Thanks fro update. The X86 - 64 software worked OK. I have put all the settings aleki gave me into software. When I run the two tests for read and write is asked me to save results to a location then just sits there with a 'Preparing Drives' in the bottom right hand box and nothing else happens ?? How long does the test normally take ?
Whens electing the test is it the drive 'C' or the Volume below that is ticked ?
Sorry to hear that, below are some suggestions about IOMeter test:
- Fresh OS installation & stop or disable unnecessary programs e.g. Screen Saver, Windows Defender/System Protection, Virus Protection;
- Plug-in the SSD P3600 as secondary drive in clean image system; Create full capacity partition
- Secure Erase the SSD P3600 for out-of-box performance via Intel SSD Data Center Tool, you can download Intel SSD data Center Tool from here: Intel® Download Center; and use command "isdct delete –intelssd X" to secure erase it in Command Prompt (run "isdct show -intelssd" first to get "X" value first);
If you still get very low performance result, then we need to check your system, for example, how about the SSD temperature? Since your system use 2 high-end graphics cards, it may heat P3600 SSD, if it is overheating, the performance will be lower. Or maybe you need to remove 1 graphics card to run test again...
BTW, could you please upload your screenshot in standard JPG format? Sorry I have no idea how to open .icf file...
This is fresh install of Windows 8. The whole system including both graphic cards are water cooled and running at 27C so heat is not an issue. Motherboard temps etc are very low. I need to run this drive in 'real' mode and get good performance using both the graphic cards etc. Removing one, disabling, virus protection etc is not the real world for performance testing.
Either the drive is faulty or there are settings on the motherboard etc that need enabling or the speeds quoted by Intel cannot be achieved on this drive ??
My previous system had the last generation of Intel SSD on an Intel 3960 X chip with twin GTX 680's and ran faster than this.???
