I have bought a OCZ Agility 3 SSD drive to build into my ASUS laptop. Because the drive is a SATA (III) drive and the laptop has only IDE connectors, i use a Fevi/Apple Second drive Caddy to put it into the DVD drive bay of the laptop. Maybe you will ask me, "Why you want to that?". I will explain that question later.
Okay, that is working fine but the speed is some low, 80MB/s read and 45MB/s write. I know it has something to do with the connection but this is not what i expected. Because the IDE connection can handle up to 133MB/s and the OCZ drive is very fast (up to 525 MB/s max read), i expect that the result will be the 133MB/s and not 80MB/s. It is running on XP in UDMA 6 mode, so transfer speed must be 133MB/s or am i wrong?
Has this something to do with the controller in the Fevi Second drive caddy or am i missing something else? Has somebody an explanation to this or what can i do to get the full 133MB/s.
I bought this baby to get the maximum speed because IDE SDD versions are slow.
