Specifications, Availability and Pricing
These are some of the highest numbers claimed to date for an Indilinx controlled drive. Every company seems to have pulled a different number out of their hat and we have not seen any coloration between the claimed speeds and the real world performance numbers. Hopefully the M225 can bring performance numbers close to their claimed speeds.
The M225 Series is currently made up of three products, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacity. All of the drives use multi-level cell memory and the same Barefoot controller that we have tested countless times before with 64MB of cache. The large amount of cache eliminates any stutter issues that we had with the early JMicron controlled drives.
As stated on the previous page, Crucial is playing hard ball with the price of the new line-up. The 256GB drive that we are testing today is already available for 599 USD; this is quite a bit lower than just about everyone else's price on 256GB Barefoot drives. Crucial is sticking with the low cost strategy for the entire line, the 128GB is 329.99 and the 64GB is 169.99.
Let's move on and see if Crucial's low(er) cost SSD can live up to the high performance claims.
