SiSoft SANDRA 2011



For our next set of tests, we used SiSoft SANDRA, the the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. Here, we used the Physical Disk test suite and provided the results from our comparison SSDs. The benchmarks were run without formatting and read and write performance metrics are detailed below. We have also included SANDRA's detailed graph so you are able to see how the drive performs over time along with the average rated result.

Our SiSoft SANDRA run confirmed our HD Tune Pro results, which in turn jibed with the rated specs. It's pretty impressive that a drive you can completely engulf in your fist packs a 200MB/s punch in read speeds (or 196.58MB/s, according to SANDRA).

Compared to the X25-M, the 310 SSD once again ran neck-and-neck turning in virtually the same write speed. Unfortunately for Intel, write performance also happens to be both of these drives' relative weak spot. Today's high end drives, like Samsung's 470 Series and OCZ's Vertex 2 line, walk all over Intel in write performance.
