    MSAHCI in the new tech preview?

    I noticed a little difference in the controller after checking my SSD last night, this is on my laptop in my specs (Other info)

    This was a clean install of Win 7,

    It automatically used amd_sata.

    I will say that test above is a lot better than my first one I did last night which was a score of 170ish.

    There is no option in the BIOS to enable AHCI either, it's a pretty basic BIOS.

    This is an A6 3420M APU. I don't really notice any difference, just an observational post.

    I wouldn't have thought there should have been that big of a difference.

    Yeah, the first run I did and got that 170 kind of threw me.

    All kinds

    You got new AMD AHCI drivers, I had to download and install them for Win8 early on. Looks like you are running on AHCI anyway and BIOS was already set like that.
