Crucial Releases 0009 Firmware For m4 SSD

Postby Ian on Fri Aug 26, 2011 5:19 pm

Crucial has released a new firmware for its m4 SSD family. Normally I wouldn't mention something like this, but it supposedly increases the drives' sequential read speeds by 20%.

Release Date: 08/25/2011
Change Log:
Changes made in version 0002 (m4 can be updated to revision 0009 directly from either revision 0001 or 0002)
Improved throughput performance.
Increase in PCMark Vantage benchmark score, resulting in improved user experience in most operating systems.
Improved write latency for better performance under heavy write workloads.
Faster boot up times.
Improved compatibility with latest chipsets.
Compensation for SATA speed negotiation issues between some SATA-II chipsets and the SATA-III device.
Improvement for intermittent failures in cold boot up related to some specific host systems.

Not a huge performance jump but its something.
