Interestingly enough, I was able to almost double my score to 50 by using a Maxtor native IDE drive with an IDE to SATA adapter. For some reason it outperforms my native SATA drives (I have a Samsung and a Seagate). Does drive brand have anything to do with performance? Real Macs supposedly use Western Digital and Maxtor drives. Perhaps upgrading to one of these manufacturers might help? Does anyone see a correlation between brand and speed?
could someone who is getting decent disk access scores post the bios settings/os version/kexts they used.I have a P35C-DS3R and I'm using the ICH9 ports with a seagate sata hdd. I get a disk score of about 30 total in xbench. I've tried with native mode both on and off and it makes no difference. Any ideas?
