I'm using Debian sid (so still at 3.2 kernel), currently using a 256G
Samsung SSD. What I get is:
root at scapa:~# hdparm -t /dev/sda /dev/mapper/scapa_crypt
Timing buffered disk reads: 690 MB in 3.01 seconds = 229.47 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 590 MB in 3.00 seconds = 196.43 MB/sec
root at scapa:~# cryptsetup status /dev/mapper/scapa_crypt
/dev/mapper/scapa_crypt is active and is in use.
keysize: 256 bits
