Intel 335 Series 180GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - DiskBench

Intel 335 Series 180GB SSD Review
The Intel 335 Series is known as 'That Intel Drive with 20nm Flash', but it's so much more. The 180GB capacity size gives you comfort room with Windows 8 and does very well in our power test.

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.

The extra write performance we observed in the corner case tests comes through in the real-world directory copy test. Just below the 335 Series are two new SandForce based 120GB drives.

 

The extra performance from the larger capacity shines through when comparing drives based on SandForce controllers. Other architectures have caught up to SandForce though, especially in the lower capacity sizes.
