Intel 320 Series 300GB SSD Review

12 July 2011
  • Excerpt: In our roundup of solid-state drives , Intel’s entrant bore Marvell’s 9174 6Gb/s SATA controller, rather than an Intel one. While the Intel 510 SSD performed respectably among its 6Gb/s SATA peers, it’s not the top-to-bottom Intel drive fans have been waiting for. That drive is finally here, and despite the Intel 320 Series nomenclature, this is the third generation in Intel’s X25-M series of mainstream solid-state drives.
  • Pros: Competitive read/write performance; good pricing; robust.
  • Cons: Limited by 3Gb/s SATA; late to the game; random-write IOPS lag behind leaders.

  • Excerpt: Until Marvell and SandForce released their first solid state drives Intel had a performance lead on all of their competitors. Unfortunately in our testing we found the 80GB Postville SSD lacked capacity and at the time the 160GB version cost substantially more than most consumers were willing to spend. Intel's ten channel controller was revolutionary, but forced Intel to release drives in odd capacity sizes.
