    Creators update ssd driver problem


    After I had updated to creators update the day after release at 11 april 2017 ... update went through well with no apparent problem ( updated through upgrade assistant) i also liked the new features .... but almost 1 month of use after... I noticed my pny cs1311 240 GB ssd was showing performance issue..... not by that much but noticeable...but the most dangerous problem was it flickered occasionally ....
    Windows loads little slower than at anniversary update . ..apps launched slow... comparably
    then i had a doubt about it... and then benchmarked it..... noticed that write speed was 15-20 MB/s slow then at anniversary update and read speed was about 10 MB/s slow... then i understood it was the controller problem
    then i tried to uninstall the driver microsoft sata ahci controller from device manager and reboot... still the same....
    so i just had to rolll back to anniversary update (fresh install) ... i was very annoyed at this since i had to install all my big programs again..... i had to write quite unnecessarily another 100 GB into the ssd .... very annoyed at microsft....
    THEY MUST FIX THIS SATA AHCI CONTROLLER OR I WILL NOT BE GOING BACK TO CREATORS UPDATE ANYTIME SOON!!!!

    Win 10 Pro 15063.332 (ex-Insider)

    I am now on Win 10 build 16193 and I have not experienced any issues (as you have described them) running my Samsung 840 EVO SSD. Maybe this PNY firmware update (04/24/2017) might help; however, one has to download and run the utility to see if the installed drive is eligible for the firmware update:

    Please understand, I am not recommending you apply this firmware update. It is just an availability FYI.

    Differences of 10 to 20Mb/s read/write on an SDD should have no noticeable impact on the user experience given that you should be seeing speeds of around 300 to 400Mb/s random reads and 500 to 600 Mb/s (or more) for sequential reads with an SSD.

    Perhaps a clean install rather than an in place upgrade would be better.

    thanks for replying....
    build 16193 is an windows 10 insider build that receives frequent updates.... maybe it has fixed in there...but certainly not in present in creators update.... at the moment....
    if you remember your benchmark results from previous insider build to new one..... however ...

    thnx for your opinion
    but unfortunately 10-20 MB/s read/write difference is noticeable for random read/write and most users will get benefit from higher random read write speed at queue depth 1.... so speed difference is there.... but this can be considered margin of error for sequential speed for basic users..... (y)

    sorry but..i already went through the pain installing big software .... I don't want to do fresh install.... again..
