Conclusion: The SSD 510 Series, Intel's replacement for its once–industry leading X25-M drive solid-state drive, turns out fine numbers in some circumstances, but its random-access speeds may be a turn off for more advanced power users.
Pros: Strong performance, particularly in sequential reads and writes. Supports 6Gbps SATA.
Cons: Slow random-access speeds compared with competing drives. Relatively expensive.
Conclusion: Today we look at Intel’s new 510 series of SSDs, offering 120GB and 250GB versions with SATA3 (6 Gb/s) compatibility. We will pit them against two hard drives and see how much one can expect to lose in terms of load times and overall speed.
Conclusion: Intel's 250GB 510 Series drive is a sterling performer especially if you want to move large files around - but with the new SandForce SF-2000 controller-equipped drives already appearing on the shelves, the timing of its release is unfortunate, to say the least.
Excerpt: While Intel will always be known for their range of consumer and business oriented processor designs, their Solid State Drives proved to be extremely popular among the enthusiast audience, selling well across the range of sizes. The X25-M in particular is still a huge seller for the company, especially with the transition to 34nm.
Summary: Средняя производительность накопителя не поражала воображение. Цена его высоковата, однако трехлетняя гарантия и традиционная для SSD под маркой Intel высокая надежность делают SSD 510 Series разумным выбором.
