LATEST: i5/i7 CPU underclocks the databus and causes the SSD to run slower. When the i5 CPU hits turbo mode the full bus speed is available. Can reach 200MBs, 195MBs is manufacturers claim for real data (incompressible).
OCZ Agility 3 120GB SSD Review, Benchmarks and Real World Tests in a 2011 SATA 2 Laptop (Samsung R780 i5 2.67Ghz) verses it's Samsung Spinpoint 640GB Hard Drive M7E HM641JI Z4. To be honest the motherboard in this laptop is pants. No eSata, No PC Express Slot, No Gigabit Ethernet, Intel series 5 controller.
NOTE: To do real world tests you need to disable the pre-fetch service and only run the program once after a reboot. If you don't you will be accessing files from the RAM cache! If I run the Battlefied 2 map a second time it loads in 12s instead of in the 40s. ;D
