in my windows 8.1 install. I didnt have MEI 184.108.40.206, I had the driver windows update game which was 8.1 then I switched to MEI 220.127.116.11 and load times increased in Soma. took almost 2 minutes for the games to load. uninstalled MEI 18.104.22.168 load times speed up in Soma. this might happened because it seems MEI drivers effect sata speeds. and Im only using microsoft achi driver.
