Lenovo G50-30 - very slow MX200

[ Edited ]

Dear all,

 

2015 I bought for my wife this marvelous laptop Smiley Wink Last year I tuned it by exchanging the hard drive (MX200). Maybe it is booting faster, but e.g. if I open Firefox and start to enter some text search window, there is a huge lag, like 10 sec till the letters appear.

 

Here are the data from AS SSD:

Benchmark

Read and write shuld be aroud 550 MB right? I checked the controller and BIOS, it is running on AHCI protocoll.

 

What do you think, it there something wrong?

 

Thanks in advance

Read and write would be ~520 on a sata 3 machine.

~260 on sata 2 - which suggests the laptop is sata 2?

 

Aside from weirdly high 4k-64thread results which I put down to a **bleep**-up by the benchmark, the speeds are spot on for a sata 2 system and give no clue as to why your firefox might be laggy. Smiley Sad

Thanks for the reply. How can I know, if it has SATA 2 or 3? I found this link: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-B-and-G-Series-Notebooks/Does-lenovo-g50-30-has-sata-2-or-3/td-p... and tells that it is SATA 3 compatible. What does t mean? Can the lags have something to do with mainboard, CPU or GPU?

@vikary Thanks for your post. The link does state SATA III compatible, this means it can use SATA III drives, but that they will clock down to SATA II speeds.  @targetbsp is correct.
