SandForce Quietly Releases Perfomance Improving Firmware For New SSDs
SandForce has released a new firmware update to client level manufacturers that significantly improves the performance of 'SandForce Driven' drives. As far as we can tell, the firmware is only available in new SSD purchases and we haven't see the same firmware available to present owners of SSDs using SandForce technology.
We believe this update has yet to be recognized within the SSD community because because legal agreements are in place between SandForce and manufacturers which prevent them from discussing it. The SSD community also relies so heavily on rating solid state drives by their advertised performance specifications that we have overlooked the simple truth that these advertised specs are not a realistic indicator of the typical users SSD performance.
If you are considering buying a solid state drive, this article will be as important as a previous article posted here at The SSD Review, titled 'The Manufacturers Bluff'.
