SiSoft Sandra HD test
Let's do a synthetic test with Sandra, just to see if we can match the results we've seen in HD Tach. The drive index test is what I refer to. Higher = Better.
You guys will agree with me that even a Western Digital Velociraptor is a fast HDD at 87 MB/sec. Here the Pyro SE did 295 MB/sec, we had hoped for slightly better results here though.
We review the Intel series 520 240GB SSD. They now have multiple SSDs on the market initially with their proprietary controller, then a Marvel controller, and today Intel releases the Series 520 SSDs based on SandForce, well LSI these days.
Intel series 320 SSD review
We review the Intel series 320 SSD. Armed with cheaper NAND flash memory this drive competes at the middle segment tagged with a decent price. But will it be enough to compete with the competition ?
