Look at the pictures.
I am still using my old Crucial MX100 256GB SSD, but now it is connecting with SATA 3 port instead of SATA 2. So the SSD performance is better than before upgrading.
I did a quick test with AS SSD 1.8.5636
Compared with the test result I run on SATA 2, it is much faster.
The previous score is 723, now it is 956. More than 30% increase. The sequence read is 511MB/s instead of 367MB/s. All these performance improvements are because of the SATA 3 connection. The test result also matches the official flyer sheet.
OH, the first test I did is Cinebench R20.
So far so good. I used the upgraded PC for three days. All looks good. I don’t even to re-install the new OS. My previous CPU is also AMD. I think this is the reason why I don’t need to reinstall it. The system, Windows 10, just need a little time to find the basic driver to load the Windows. Then I did some driver update to make it better.
My only hope of it is that I can use it for another six years.
