Crucial released a new firmware update by Crucial for its M4 series SATA 6 Gb/s SSDs
The update is build 0009 for the models CT064M4SSD2 (64 GB), CT0128M4SSD2 (128 GB), CT0256M4SSD2 (256 GB), and CT0512M4SSD2 (512 GB)
The update is said to increase sequential read speeds by 20%. PCMark Vantage Disk performance is also increased.
The new firmware also works to increase throughput performance, lower write latency, wider compatibility with latest chipsets (AHCI modes), and fixes various kinds of cold-boot failures. The firmware lowers SATA speed negotiation time with host controllers, resulting in faster boot.
