I did not know there even were Green SSDs....

but, I suspect this drive likely has next to no cache for speed, and must slowly write everything...

They are calling it 'green' for some reason....; probably slow on top of everything else....

Greens are cacheless and pretty-much bottom of the barrel when it comes to SSDs.

Replacing it with a Samsung EVO sounds like a good move.
yes i do understand they greens are very bad but they are the only SSDs i can afford here (everything overprced here) and the speeds i am getting are worse than others users so i wanted to know wat are they doing and i am not

Lots of folks complaining on the Green SSDs, although the benchmark numbers look good when they are used as simple secondary storage drives, they are rumored to rival the speed of molasses in January when used as an OS drive due to lack of write cache...

I doubt your CrstalDIskMark numbers achieved are really fixable....

do exact what task that took peopel 9 min vs 45min?
what the size of the game. running anything else on the disk.
like we said the ssd have no cache, and it your own disk, so it share resource with other process.
