Legion with slower CPU benchmarks faster - confused

2021-01-13, 18:48 PM

I have two lenovo Legions with the same hard drives (addlink S70).  Both are a different speed cpu but the write speed on the slower computer seems a little faster.  I'd like to used the fastest computer for Zoom usage, but I'm kinda confused.  Have a look!

Hello @MrChard39,

 

Thanks for reaching out.

 

Can you to try swapping the drives to see if that makes a difference?

 

Since it is possible that this is because of the BIOS and SATA controller interaction that may need to be updated.

 

Since you are planning on using this for Zoom, I believe that Disk write speeds are not needed for a good experience you would most likely be better going for the machine with a higher CPU and RAM capacity.

 

Also, upgrading to an SSD would be a far superior experience if you need a drive with fast read and write speeds.

 

 

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Jack_Lenovo1

So you think I need to update the bios?  I think they are both updated.  Is there an option in the bios to boost the speeds?  It seems like it could be some setting somewhere.  And switching the drives might not be so easy.  Thanks for your reply!
