PNY Prevail Elite 240GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - Test System Setup and ATTO Baseline Performance

PNY Prevail Elite 240GB SSD Review
With all the talk about TLC, 20nm and other new forms of flash that reduce the number of P/E cycles - it's nice to see one company fight against the flow. PNY's Prevail Elite is a 10K P/E cycle SSD that uses a LSI SF-2200 Series controller.

Lenovo W530 - Mobile Workstation

 

 

We use two systems for SSD testing. The desktop runs a majority of the tests and the Lenovo W530 runs the notebook power tests as well as the real-world file transfer benchmark.

 

 

ATTO Baseline Performance

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34

 

ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.

The Prevail Elite 240GB with a SF-2281 controller and MLC flash produces typical SandForce consumer performance numbers. We achieved 557MB/s read and 535MB/s write speeds in ATTO.
