SuperSSpeed Hyper Gold S301 128GB w/5.03 FW SSD Review - Benchmarks - Sequential Performance

We've tested SuperSSpeed's S301 SLC before, but a lot has changed since we said it was the fastest SSD in the world. The competition has caught up a bit, and SuperSSpeed now stocks the drive in the US, and we get a newer TRIM fixing firmware.

HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:

 

Benchmark: measures the performance

Info: shows detailed information

Health: checks the health status by using SMART

Error Scan: scans the surface for errors

Temperature display

 

HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has gained popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.

We found a dip about 70% through the test where the performance went down to 356MB/s. The average sequential read speed was 411MB/s and the maximum was just over 420MB/s.

When it comes to the average write speed, very little on the market can compare to the S301. Here we see compressible data and the only real contender is the OCZ Vector since the Intel 335 and OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS will drop off when we test with incompressible data. We'll get to those tests later in this review.
