Mushkin Chronos DX 480GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - DiskBench

Mushkin has quietly held a price lead throughout 2012 on the 480 / 512GB capacity size. The Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 480GB isn't always the absolute lowest priced SSD in this size, but it's the lowest priced SSD with synchronous / toggle mode flash.

Note: In this test we use the Lenovo W530 Mobile Workstation and a SuperSSpeed S301 SLC 128GB SSD to move a 15GB block of data to and from the target drive. This is part of our real world test regiment. Roughly 45GB of data resides on the target drive before the '15GB Block' is transfer. The 15GB Block is the same data we built for the Data on Disk Testing and is a mix of compressible and incompressible data.

All of the drives in this chart manage to read mixed data (compressible and incompressible) for transfers at around 300MB/s. Writing data from a file transfer is where we see significant differences. The Chronos DX 480GB managed to write mixed data at 252MB/s.
