    My Disk writes too slow - why ?

    This 2 TB Disk has the same speed as the 960 TB Disk when Reading Why can the 5400 r.p.m drive keep up with the older smaller 7200 rpm drive when READING, BUT chug along at less than half speed when WRITING. This suggests that the same number of bytes will be read by the heads of the drive in...

    My Disk writes too slow - why ?

    PortableApps

    Is PortableApps really relevant. I understood that I was getting a proper portable when I downloaded hw32_422.zip today (rather than a make-believe Portable-ISED variant that makes temporary use of the registry) Regards Alan

    Is PCIe speed measured or hoped for ?

    The last item on the Sensor Status report is PCIe Link Speed 5.000 Gbps 5.000 Gbps 5.000 Gbps 5.000 Gbps I hope this means my motherboard not only supports but is running as PCI Express Base 2.0 specification. QUESTIONS :- Do you actually measure this 5 Gbps as present reality...
