The drives tested on our new storage testbed, has the following system specifications:
The list of SSDs tested are as follows:
The Transcend SSD 320 is one of the few SSDs with asynchronous NAND memory that we’ve tested and it will be interesting to see how it matches up against Transcend’s own SSD720, which uses quicker Toggle Mode NAND. Also, key comparisons will be made against the OCZ Agility 4, which is also equipped with asynchronous NAND memory. Included in our performance analysis is also the duo from Intel - the SSD 520 and SSD 335 Series - as well as the Plextor M2S and Kingston HyperX SSD.
The list of benchmarks used are as follows:
