Intel's X25-M G3 SSD has been spotted, tested

Intel's X25M G3 has been spotted, purchased and tested - all before hitting retail

Intel's new G3 SSD has been spotted - amongst the newer, younger SandForce-based SSD's - it's getting harder to know "which one is best".

Intel didn't take long to punch back, it has polished it's X25 SSD and shrunk it to 25nm as a follow-up to it's G2 release, touted as the "Postville Refresh". Strangely - the G3 part was pouched from an eBay equivalent in China - someone has of course purchased it and ran benchmarks on it.

 

Read speed was tested up to 218MB/s, which is below the Intel-promised 250MB/s. Write speed, however, posted 167.4MB/s, near the official 170MB/s.

 

Of course it could be fake (like your Louis Vuitton handbag you may have purchased from the same site) - but if it is indeed fake, you won't be complaining about it's performance anytime soon.
