Default OCZ Summit SSD Real Competiton For Intel X25-M

The OCZ Summit series of solid state drives is based on a brand new controller from Samsung - so new in fact that our testing drives were actually "glued" together and the name of the controller was sanded off before they arrived to us here. Because these are very early engineering samples they aren't pretty looking - hand applied stickers, etc. But what is important of course is performance, not looks.


For as long as the Intel X25-M solid state drives have been on the market, we have always had to end all of our other SSD reviews with "pretty good but" conclusions. The advent of a new generation of solid state drives like the OCZ Summit, with new controller logic and the addition of on-board cache memory, is finally giving Intel's mainstream drives some real competition. The performance of the OCZ Summit 250GB SSD is still not besting that of X25-M but it is coming close. Where the OCZ Summit really shines in our tests is with write speeds - the addition of 64MB of cache definitely has increased overall write throughput compared to previous Samsung MLC-based designs and are indeed faster than the write speeds on the Intel X25-M.
