Sata Controller Driver For Intel Ssd

Nov 13, 2015  It uses an AMD SATA Controller. I noticed after upgrading to Windows 10 that my SSD was very slow and my DVD drive didn't show up in my computer, and in device manager it was listed under 'Other devices'. I did a fresh install of Windows 10 and still had the same problem. It should update the driver and rename it to 'AMD SATA Controller. If you have an late Intel platform it probably has a better SATA III controller than the Marvel. Let me know the MB you will be using. Btw, when you go to install your new SSD, will you be doing a fresh install of Win7/8 or cloning the old HDD? Using an SSD drive on a SATA ICH9M/ICH9M-E controller [closed]. The SATA controller is really not a factor in choosing between the Samsung 840 (Basic) and the Samsung 840 Pro. Upgrading to SSD in an old laptop with SATA controller Intel 82801IBM/IEM. Is Samsung MZ-75E250B compatible with dell inspiron 5520.

Hello folks
Laptop is Toshiba Satellite A135-S4467.
Upgraded the memory from 1GB to 4GB.
Mainly used for MS office apps or web browsing or perhaps a movie everynow and then.
While browsing the site I noticed some interesting SATA III SSDs.
Was thinking of spending (up to) $100 in order to obtain a small 120GB SSD
which together with the memory
would give the laptop a few more years of life
(vs spending >$700 to purchase a new one)
Will it work?
If not please disregard the rest of the questions.
Will I get the extra speed
by switching from HD to SSD
if controller is SATA 1 and SSD is SATA 3?
How much extra speed?
from a quick check on transfer rates
looks faster than
120GB SSDNow V300 SATA 3
and a bit more expensive.
However if used in a SATA 1 controller do I get that extra speed?
Or should I simply get the cheapest SSD I can find since with using SATA1 controllers speed is going to be very slow anyway?
Does it slow down because of other factors (ie DVDs)?
Many thanks in advance for your answers

This is my current setup:

  • Abit AB9 QuadGT motherboard which has an Intel P965 chipset with Intel ICH8 SATA Rev. 2.0 controller
  • Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB SSD which supports SATA Rev. 3.0
  • Windows 7 Ultimate x64

/download-game-the-warriors-ps2-untuk-pc/. For some reason I was unable to install Windows with the controller set in AHCI mode, even with the correct driver from Intel so it is currently in IDE mode.

Due to the ICH8 controller being SATA Rev 2.0 and running in IDE mode, the SSD is operating well under it's published read/write speeds.

I have ordered an Asus U3S6 controller card to add both SATA Rev. 3.0 and USB 3.0 to my computer.

The motherboard does have a PCIe x4 slot available so I will hopefully achieve the full potential of my SSD.

My question is this - am I able to swap the SSD over to the controller card from the motherboard controller without having to clean install Windows?

I am hoping that all I will need to do is ensure that the controller card drivers are available to Windows and set the registry as per this KB article.

Will this work or should I perform a clean installation?
