Assuming the EVO 750GB performs the same as the 1TB model, we've tested every tera-era class SATA III SSD to hit the market. Over time I'm sure we're get the flagship drive in for testing, but for now we have to use the 750GB model to compare to the MyDigitalSSD BP4 960GB and Crucial M500 960GB. In these application tests (measured in second, lower is better), all three drives perform about the same.
