Default SSD Roundup Fall 2010

At last! After the appearance of our article SSD, TRIM and IOMeter, our SSD product report is ready! On the menu, you will of course find the SSDs that we have been recommending up until now, namely those based on Indilinx Barefoot controllers and the Intel Postvilles.


The Intel Postvilles have been tested in 80 GB and 160 GB versions, while the Barefoot is used in no less than 4 of the SSDs tested
- The Crucial M225 64 GB and 128 GB, which are standard models
- The OCZ Vertex Turbo 120 GB, with an overclocked version of the Barefoot
- The G.Skill Falcon II, which combines a Barefoot with IMFT 34nm flash
Still with a view to give representation to the “old” SSDs, we have also included the OCZ Summit 60/120 GB based on a Samsung controller and which are clones of the Samsung PB22-Js.

5 new SSDs join these:
- The OCZ Vertex 2 100 GB, based on the already famous SandForce SF-1200 controller
- The Crucial C300 128 GB, using the Marvell SATA 6 Gbits/s controller
- The Sandisk G3 120 GB, long-awaited and finally available
- The Kingston SSDNow V SNV425, built around the JMicron JMF618 controller
- The Kingston SSDNow V+ SNVP325, using a Toshiba controller

I hope it's not the same controller used by Apple for their SSDs, because its performance in random r/w is horrible.

at least performance over time doesn't degrade

Indeed, and honestly, if you look at the review, everyday performance is still very good. You don't really need those high IOPS 99% of the time.

yes you are correct that it's faster than a HDD, thank god for that;
but you do notice the difference in throughput between SSDs in daily usage, especially when you're multitasking; currently got 11 applications open,on a Core i7, 2gb in use;

first was using an Intel 160Gb G2 , now on Corsair F120 SSD, I notice the difference in IO. it's not a major difference, but it's there

that will make for a nice change
I've been testing SSDs at work now with different laptops to gauge performance differences, and they go from pretty nice improvement, to phenomenal differences

Hey Kurgan, these samples are bought on company dime (not [M]) for internal tests, unfortunately budget is not unlimited
