In our benchmark comparisons we already have a couple of next generation solid state drives. The RunCore Pro V uses the SandForce 1500 enterprise controller and the Crucial RealSSD has the Marvell SATA 6G controller. For pricing we are told the Pro V will cost just a little less than the Kingston SSDNow V+ 512GB drive, but that is for only 100GB of storage capacity.
The Crucial C300 hits store shelves in just a couple of days and it runs 799.00 USD for only 256GB of capacity. Based in this information, I can determine that price wise the V+ Series 512GB costs right around where I expect it to be. The V+ 256GB drive is available at Newegg for 700 USD, around 100 less than the Crucial C300. Let's take a look at the performance and see if the price vs. performance ratio fits.
ATTO Baseline Performance
Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34
ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.
The ATTO test shows us what a drive is capable of doing under the best circumstances. Here we see the Kingston SSDNow runs identical numbers to what Kingston claims in their marketing material.
