That is pretty much the SSD, maybe twice the size of a creditcard overall. SSD drives provide less heat, more reliability and faster performance, or at least they should so lets get on with the testing.


Testing was done with the following test setup

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K 3,3GHz
Motherboard: Asus P8P64 PRO Rev 3.1
RAM: Patriot 4GB DDR3
HDD: Patriot TorqX 2 128GB SSD, Kingston HyperX 120GB SSD
Videocard:  Asus 9800GT

Testing was done with the following software:




AS SSD Benchmark, Copy, Compression


AS SSD Benchmark:

In this benchmark we run the sequential data benchmark to show how the Sandforce performs with heavy compressed data.


According to the specifications the read speed should be around 520MB/s and we got 500MB/s which is more than ok in this case.

When it comes to write they say 480MB/s but that is with the best possible scenario and uncompressed data. With heavy compressed data like in AS SSD we get 162,81 as average speed but we have been around 170MB/s which is way faster than a lot of SSD drives on the market after looking at other reviews and forums.

AS SSD Benchmark Copy benchmark:

Copying big files can take time and a lot of performance but even big files are no match for this drive, for example our older Patriot SSD “only” performs at 103,09 at the ISO test.

AS SSD Benchmark Compression benchmark:

On the compression benchmark we can see results that climb as the test goes on at it peaks around 480MB/s which is a very good result that is around the specified speed.
