Organ loading speed

Postby minktor » Thu Nov 08, 2018 8:01 am

I have an 500 GB SSD M.2 with tested 3000 MB/s.
Loading an organ, the taskmanger shows me only app. 300 MB/s speed.
How to accelerate the system ?
Loading the Melbourne Townhall Organ ist the time for a cup of coffee :-)

Hi Minktor,
Firstly, Melbourne Town Hall is one very big sample set - at about 30GB!!
Since your SSD is super fast, you may be being limited by the ability of your motherboard to handle such transfer speed.
Is your transfer via PCIe or SATA?
SATA may limit you to 600MB/s (5 minutes load for MTH); PCIe may be faster depending on how many "lanes" can be used for transfer.
I have Melbourne Town Hall, and a 500GB SSD - I would love to load at 3000MB/s in just ten seconds!! (it takes me about 3 minutes, but well worth the wait) .

If you have enough RAM, you may load your organs without any compression. The loading time is considerably reduced with this setting.

It could be that the M.2 connector on your motherboard indeed is only functioning at SATA speeds. Do you have the motherboard name/code?

Also, the most recent Windows 10 versions seem to slow down loading times quite a bit.

In the most optimal way (uncompressed loading), reaching 1000-1100 MB/s is the best you can get. do not forget that the advertized 3000 MB/s is only at 1 specific workload. Look for reviews and you will see that in most user cases the speeds are lower. Loading windows or games is not faster from a pci-e ssd in comparison to a regular SATA SSD.
