I recently installed a SSD drive for my friends computer. It was a intel based SSD drive i connected using the Sata Ports on his mother board.

I remember it was listed at 100MB Read and Write which to me was great.


How ever how come I see this and other drives like it that are 120gb SSD drives with 280mb read and write?

Do these types of cards require a certain SSD card installed to get those speeds? Or do I connect through the SATA port as well?

My computer I want to do this install on is about 1 and a haf years old now. Just wanted to double check before I spend cash on this.

Thank You!
Mathew

Most SSDs are either SATA or PCI Express.

Also, yeah... 100MB isnt that much, especially since intel ones are usually great performing :eek:
