PNY Prevail Elite 240GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - Sequential 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.

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 don't mind "typical" LSI SandForce consumer performance as it represents a solid platform known for stability and has been around long enough for the bugs to get sorted out. In our sequential read across the drive test we achieved 426MB/s average read speed with a nice tight line on the graph that shows consistent performance at this stage in the test.

The sequential write speed topped 410MB/s, but HD Tune Pro uses incompressible data. We'll look at incompressible data performance later in this review.

Here we see a light use consumer state after a number of random writes to the Prevail Elite.
