CrystalDiskMark Benchmarks

CrystalDiskMark is a synthetic benchmark that tests both sequential as well as random small and large file transfers.  It does a nice job of providing a quick look at best and worst case scenarios with regard to SSD performance, best case being larger sequential transfers and worse case being small, random transfers.

CrystalDiskMark reported some interesting results for the Intel SSD 320 series drive. Here, Intel's latest has no trouble besting the other SATA II-based drives (the X25-M G2 and OCZ Vertex 2) in the Sequential and 512K transfers tests (with the exception of reads @ 512K), but in the 4K transfer tests, regardless of the queue depth, the 320 series drives trails the competition.
