Hi all...

I'm new to this forum, greetings to all forum friends. My question is: I have a motherboard Asus SABERTOOTH and equips the 990FX chipset, I wonder if when installing the drivers is best to leave the default brings Windows 7 64 bit or upgrade to 13.4 from AMD chipset. I've just heard that the AMD AHCI drivers dont going very fine and can cause problems, is this true??? What is the better to install???

 

Thanks.

I just recently did some testing...  on my old 790GX board it was better to use msAHCI...  but now it is a close call

 

 

AMD loses a bit on the 64 QD 4k... but pretty much wins the day overall

Using both MSAHCI and AMD drivers and performance was basically the same give or take a few MB/s, nothing you are going to notice in a real world situation. Though looking at other sites, Intel chipsets have an advantage.

Thanks so much QB for your post, I have come to the same conclusion but using HD Tune Pro. I thinks like you that msahci are better.

I hope other guys give us your opinion, but for now I prefer those from microsoft.

Thanks my friend.

Second that. On all my Win7 and Win8 builds I have avoided the AMD Sata (AHCI drivers). Too many problems in the past and MS drivers just work fine.
