A large portion of the speed from the MemoRight MS-701 240GB can be attributed to the firmware on the drive. MemoRight lists it as 1.3.3, but in SandForce terminology that should be 3.3, one of the most stable releases to come out of the SandForce lab. In our charts today we also have another SATA III mSATA drive with a SandForce FSP, the RunCore T50 120GB drive. The new firmware found on the MemoRight MS-701 produces a much better read performance graph when reading across the drive.

The write speed is much better on the MS-701 240GB. Here we see an average sequential write of compressible data at 407MB/s. The MS-701 isn't just a fast mSATA drive; it would hold its own against the current crop of 2.5" form factor drives!
