Ok so the thing goes something like this, i've built a new RYZEN 1600 system with a ASUS PRIME B350M-A giving the old i5-2310 with an ASUS P8H61M-LX Rev.3 to my brother and buying some new stuff for both PC's.

Both devices have the same Operating System HDD alike, a SEAGATE Barracuda 1000mb 7200rpm 64mb each brand new, the issue is that my RYZEN CPU being SATA-III in comparision to the old i5 that's a SATA-II is more slow in HDD management.


I've made some benchmarks with CrystalDiskMark 5.2.1 x64 and here are the results.

As you can see is a peak of 30-40mb of read speed, and the same to write speeds.

And as far as i know, is has to be more powerful my Ryzen system.

I don't know if it's a technical find, or bug, issue, i don't really know, please provide help.


Things i've did, changing the SATA cables, changing PSU, changing SATA slots, all the same.
