Does power saving settings affect SSD performance?

Related Model ( 169 )

Yes, if you enable power saving options like [C3/C6 State Support] in BIOS, it allows CPU to enter deep sleep state and SSD performance may drop accordingly. 
You can disable [C3/C6 State Support] under [Advanced Frequency Settings] > [Advanced CPU Core Features] menu to see if it helps.
