Next we ran SiSoft SANDRA, the the S
iagnostic and R
ssistant. 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.

|Synthetic HDD Benchmarking
The new Intel SSD DC S3500 performed relatively well in SiSoft SANDRA's Physical Disk Benchmark. The drive led the pack in the read test and offered very good write performance as well. When running two of the drives in RAID 0, the Intel SSD DC S3500 led once again.
