Indilinx: AS-SSD Performance
Using an NTFS formatted Corsair Nova V128 Solid State Drive, sequential bandwidth speed and operational performance tests were conducted on the Indilinx 'Eco' Barefoot SSD controller with AS-SSD Benchmark 1.4.3704:
Indilinx "Eco" Barefoot SSD Performance on ICH10 AHCI
Indilinx "Eco" Barefoot SSD Performance on ICH10 IDE
Indilinx AS-SSD Benchmark Summary
Using AS-SSD Benchmark the reported sequential read speeds favored AHCI, while sequential write performance was similar between SATA modes. Reported AHCI sequential read/write speeds: 236/187 MB/s. Reported IDE speeds: 220/188 MB/s.
4K single thread write tests were very similar, but 4K 64-thread tests undoubtedly favored the Indilinx SSD controller in AHCI mode.
SATA Mode Recommendation: AHCI
