Sata transfer speed on an SSD

I've posted before about this problem. I've sort of cured it but still not happy. I've a HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. It has a poor APU. It wouldn't run my Samsung SSD at Sata 3 speed. After disabling hibernation then it does run at 6GB/s speed but if I do a reboot it drops to 3GB/s speed. Prior to having hibernation enabled it always ran at the lower speed. A total shutdown and reboot bring it up to speed (pun intended).

It doesn't have a full BIOS or a full UEFI just a mongrel with hardly any settings.

Now I am puzzled that after restarting the transfer rate drops to half and that I need to shutdown completely to get it back.

Anyone any ideas?

Speccy info -

Apologies for the format but this is how it turns out with copy and paste.

This info is while Samsung Magician is reporting SATA 3.

You might be looking at a BIOS upgrade click here

I've checked but have the latest for UEFI which is Insyde F.26 2013 version that's showing in the list you linked to. Puzzled here.

Thanks for the suggestion and have a great New Year :)

So I've run the Samsung Magician's Performance Optimization to see what would happen. It restored hibernation and fast boot as expected. Now on start-up and reboot the transfer speed is down to SATA 2.

Binned it to a backup laptop especially with that useless APU. Bought a new HP laptop with an i5.
