Our Summary and Conclusion

Performance Summary: SanDisk’s Extreme Pro series of solid state drives performed very well throughout our entire battery of tests. They faltered a bit in our IOMeter tests, but consistently offered some of the best read performance we have seen to date, with excellent access times, and competitive write performance as well. The drives excelled with large sequential transfers, and with small random transfers at higher queue depths. Performance with SanDisk’s Extreme Pro drives is also consistent regardless of the compressibility of the data being used and the trace-based PCMark tests showed the drives competing with some of the best SSDs out there.
