This article started out as a follow up to our original SanDisk Extreme review where we managed to botch the performance numbers. Obviously we needed to get the correct performance information out there, but then the new Plextor M3P arrived. With everyone buzzing about these two drives we felt it would be better to put them in the ring together and see what happened.
Even without TRIM, the SanDisk Extreme was a good performer, but with TRIM working, we can say that this is the not only the highest performing SandForce drive on the market, but this is the highest performing consumer SSD regardless of controller.
The Vantage score of over 85,000 was very impressive, but even more impressive is how the Extreme is able to carry the performance over to when data is present.
In the coming days we'll take a closer look at the Plextor M3 Pro 256GB and 128GB drives. These models ship with an impressive software, documentation package and have the industries longest warranty length.
Stay tuned for more soon!
