Just for the sake of information. In my AMD system I use the standart AHCI driver from windows... If you check the build version of the driver you will see that the driver from windows is actually updated with the matching version of your current Windows version. Also in SSD benchmarks I have more stable and faster resuslts on Standard AHCI driver. I spoke to an MVP about the fact of date of the windows driver show 2006 and he basically says that this is intentional because it will not overwrite the driver of the AMD or Intel package in every Windows build update since Windows automatically updates drivers to a newer branch... Also I had problems with AMD AHCI drivers and newer SSD's... Thats why AHCI drivers from AMD need to be installed manually... because they have some issues... So all in all AMD users are better off with Windows msahci.sys driver. Best Regards.
