Right off the top we see that the X2-256 is around 6.2 MB/s faster than the X2-128. Unfortunately that still leaves it around 20MB/s slower than the Intel X25-M, the drive we are trying to knock off the top. The X2-256 is still the second fastest drive we have tested to date and it is more than double the capacity of the X25-M we tested a few months back.


Write Tests

Our write speed test is complicated no matter which drive you compare the X2-256 against. Both of the Solidata X2 drives reign supreme when it comes to peak bandwidth. The 256GB model is able to move data on average faster than the X25-M, but the minimum transmission hurts the drive in the long run.
