Mushkin Chronos DX 480GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - Sequential Performance

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.

We have a handful of other large capacity drives in the chart today to compare the Mushkin Chronos Deluxe. The controller and flash combination in the Chronos DX has proven itself many times and delivers predictable performance over a long period of time. In our sequential read test we achieved an average read speed of just over 426MB/s.

The sequential write speed measured at 408MB/s with compressible data. We'll look at incompressible data deeper in the review.
