BIOS setting HDD/SSD transfer rate

Postby RoJeC on 21 May 2015, 13:20

At an older PC after years I took the effort of enabling the Numlock on start up in BIOS...
But way more interesting: during the search I noticed an option for HDD transfer rate. This was set to 1.5gb 'only', being SATA I standard.

I checked my DJ system as well and as I use SATA II and III drives this could be increased to 3gb (or 6gb for 'SATA III only' system).

Seems my tracks load even faster now....

Do not set a to high value!!!

Pretty sure others may benefit of this suggestion, especially if you use SSD and maybe have a even faster bus.

Each storage disk has a certain throughput rate for its output (writing is always slower). Common standard is SATA, versions I, II and III.

What I found, in my BIOS(-es) is a value that restricted this at the PC side to SATA I (1.5gb/s). As my hdd are all faster this could be a higher value.
Effectively meaning that max throughput for reading from disk is faster send to CPU/memory.

It may depend on the manufacturer if such setting is present and what options you have.

As it is a BIOS setting one has to be careful and when doubt read the BIOS section of the PC manual.....
