    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.

    Generally new firmware is making sequential read transfers higher but some users were complaining for lower random write transfers and slower access time for writes.
    In my case sequential read on single drive is higher but all other transfers are almost the same +/- 1-3%. When I set raid then some results are worse than on 0002 firmware and sequential read is about 20MB/s higher in ATTO or AS-SSD.
    It's only on AMD controller but maybe it's working better on Intel that I didn't check.

    So max sequential transfers in ATTO I are about:
    Single drive - 560/115 MB/s
    RAID0 - 750/235 MB/s
    on 0002 was:
    Single drive 460/115 MB/s
    RAID0 - 720/235 MB/s

    it's for 2x M4 64GB on AMD SB950
