We did some quick experimenting with an Intel X25-M 80GB drive using HD Tach. We ran a couple of tests before flashing to the latest firmware, and after flashing...
As you can see in the HD Tach graphs above, performance is right in line with the new firmware. Keep in mind, however, this firmware update isn't about increasing performance across the board under every test condition, but rather about eliminating a potential performance degradation issue that could crop up under certain conditions. We're currently working on a SSD round-up which will be posted in the not too distant future. That article will feature a full suite of performance tests on the X25-M using this latest firmware update.
