AHCI was required for imaging software.

This guy benchmarked both and found AHCI was faster, about twice as fast for writes.

Thx. How about AHCI vs. ATA ?

If it is an option, use AHCI. It is the current standard and is generally better / faster than the older standard when used with current drives. Just keep in mind that with an older OS, like XP, you may have some driver issues.

set AHCI for SSD. and 4K alignment for your SSD. done

Can 4K alignment for SSD be done after OS install??
