Samsung SSD 860 EVO - only 1,5 Gb/s

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Hi,

 

I have SSD listed above,  which  supports  6 Gb/s (SATA III), my motherboard ASUS M4N78 SE has only 3 Gb/s, but it runs only on 1,5 Gb/s.

 

Other SSD in my PC Kingston SA400S37120G runs on 3Gb/s, this is correct.

 

Firmwares of all devices and BIOS are up to date. Any idea about this?

Maybe some limitation from old NVIDIA chipset? (MCP77/78)

 

I attach screens from AS SSD benchmark and also from Samsung Magician.

Thank you

hi @userADaAZ4bJxU 

for your inquiry. you should check the indication on your motherboard if you are using a SATA3 slot

but if you are using an older NVIDIA chipset motherboard because most of them are from a different instruction ERA it might only support SATA2 speeds

and you should check your SATA cables too because some of them are designed to handle up to SATA2 speeds it is better to use a newer designed SATA3 cable for this specific drives.

 

for more information about SATA instructions you can reference this https://hddmag.com/sata-2-vs-sata-3-vs-esata-whats-the-difference/

 

 

hopefully, this will help with your problem

Thanks for posting your concerns, 

 

I would like to start off by asking what else is connected on your motherboard? How many HDDs, SSDs or GPUs?

Dear Kevin-837,

 

sorry for my late reply. I've already figured it out. I just switch SATA cable to the another port on the motherboard. Now there is 3 Gb/s speed. There is still limitations from the chipset side anyway. I will probably buy a new Motherboard, this one is quite old...

 

Thank you for your help and have a nice day

 

Best Regards,

Michal

Dear userADaAZ4bJxU

 

I hope you are having a good day.

 

The spec for the SSD can be find here.

https://www.samsung.com/us/computing/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/ssd-860-evo-2-5--sata-iii-1tb...

 

There is section in that spec that stated the device could run at.

Interface

SATA 6 Gb/s Interface, compatible with SATA 3 Gb/s & SATA 1.5 Gb/s interface

 

However it also depend on how many hard drive currently is plug into the motherboard using sata cable.

 

I hope I was able to provide some answer for your concern.
