SanDisk Extreme II 240GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - DiskBench

SanDisk Extreme II 240GB SSD Review
The 256GB capacity class is the sweet spot for enthusiasts. This size maximizes the price, capacity and performance ratio. SanDisk has high hopes for Extreme II, but in order to sell these drives in big numbers, it has to do well here. (NASDAQ:SNDK)

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.

Just like the 120GB Extreme II, the 240GB model just doesn't quite get up to the same performance levels as 840 Pro and Vector when copying our mix data directory from one SSD to another. However, the data transfer performance is still very high.

 

On a 120GB or even a 240GB SSD, you won't transfer massive directories like this very often. Your usage model changes when you get into the 512GB class drives though since you have the spare area to shuffle massive volumes of data around.
