    I can definitely confirm that my RC copy will. Scheduled defrag was enabled by default on the fresh install I did yesterday, and set to onece per week. It actually started to execute after the PC was idle for a time. I managed to stop it almost right away and disable the scheduled task. I'm sure that they must be referring to the RTM version. If that is the case then that's great, as it's one less thing to worry about when my copy arrives on the 20th.

    note that the scheduling of defrag may also have something to do with the way my BIOS is set up, not sure.

    Here's that picture of HD Tach before the secure erase and restore. The read trace is now completely on the 245MB/s line through the whole capacity of the drive. It's well worth doing as long as you intend to leave the boot drive pretty much pristine and use another SSD or a spinner for the rest of your usage.



    EDIT*** I can almost confirm that the article refers to the RTM (final) of Win 7, as on my config, Superfetch was also enabled as well as boot and application launch prefetching. Definitely good that Win 7 is tailoring itself to the hardware it's on. Makes me look forward to installing my copy to see if they managed to squeeze any more performance from the OS in the final build compared to 7100.

    Guys, I have WD 1TB Black SATA2, I have AHCI enabled and Intel Storage Matrix driver installed, HDTune detects my HDD running @ ATA133 UDMA6 and it says Standard UDMA 8, how I can make my HDD to run @ UDMA 8?

    My WD6400AAKS is also detected as UDMA 6. However its burst transfer speed is 236MB/s, which is well above even UDMA7, confirming my drive is infact running UDMA8, or SATA 300.

    I would guess your drive would be the same. Grab a copy of HD Tach and run the standard tests. If your burst is higher than 133MB/s, youre definitely not actually in UDMA6, and Windows/drivers are reporting the incorrect UDMA mode (which in itself is harmless). Note that to run HD Tach on Vista or Windows 7 you need to set it to run in XP compatibility mode, I use XP SP3 mode.

    Thx Psycho, HDTach gave me 236MB/s burst transfer speed but in the test max was 100mb/s and average 89mb/s

    On the 20th? The release date is October 22.

    My tesco preorder must ship early then. I've had my confirmation email with an estimated delivery date of Tuesday 20th. I've had the same happen with a few games too, where I ended up getting them 3--4 days before they hit the streets.

    Thx Psycho, HDTach gave me 236MB/s burst transfer speed but in the test max was 100mb/s and average 89mb/s
    Sounds like everything's working as it should. A 7200RPM mechanical drive won't saturate the SATA 300 bus, as unlike a SSD, the drives are much slower. Those figures sound good. I get ~120MB/s max and 103MB/s average on my WD Caviar Blue. The end of the drive will be slower (slows down as you get to the centre of the platters), which is also normal for a spinner.

    Just thought I would show off some of my SSD bench's since I got a set this past month

    They look like pretty nice drives Lsd! Much faster in sequential write operations than my X-25-M, so nicely suited for anyone looking to completely replace their HDD and use SSD's for general file creation etc.

    Some may confuse the Intel's much higher AS SSD scores, even over a RAID0 SSD aray as it being much "better". However it's just stronger in some areas than others. For making large files sequentially, those Crucial's would be better, even non RAID. However, the Intel drives have absolutely monsterous random write capabilities, nearly three times that of those Crucial disks in RAID0. Also, the over head of RAID may be contributing to the higher access times of the pair of Crucials.

    Did you bench the drives individually before RAIDing them Lsd? I'd be interested to see the score of a single drive.

    Ya I wanted to get Intel or OCZ, but the price on the Crucials was much nicer.

    No, I did not bench them separately, but I will as I plan to write up a little review sometime soon when I find the time

    The |Crucial's are great drives too. It's always sensible to go fir a combo of price and performance. Only reason I got the Intel drive was because my uncle had access to some at trade prices (2500 units cost price of ~90 each). He was doing a big job for a company whose servers need amazingly fast IOPS, and the G1/G2 Intel's fitted the bill.

    DO you have access to a RAID card you could use? It's possible that the ICH10R is the limiting factor in some of those figures.

    I look forward to the write up mate!
