Intel 320 Series 300GB SSD Review w/ 25nm Flash!


AS-SSD Synthetic Benchmark

We continue on with our battery of benchmarks with the AS-SSD suite.

AS-SSD (1.6.4013.39530) Benchmark – Intel P67 Platform

We have been running the AS-SSD Benchmark app for over some time now and found that it gives a broad result set. The programmer has worked very hard on this software and continues to make updates often so if you use it, show him some love and send him a donation. There are now three tests that are found within the tool and we’ll show the results from all of them.

Benchmark Results: The Intel 320 Series scores well, especially in the sequential reads. The 4k writes are still outpaced by the SandForce drives by a good margin but the 4k reads are right there. Again, the 4k random write scores may be under-reported by this benchmark due to it’s short run so evaluate the score with this in mind.

Benchmark Results: The graph shows that the impact of data compressibility is minimal
at best which is different from SandForce based drives which see a ramp
up in performance as you move along the X-axis.

Let’s do some real world tests!
