ADATA SX300 256GB mSATA SSD Review - Benchmarks - DiskBench

ADATA SX300 256GB mSATA SSD Review
Today we did deep and take a close look at ADATA's SX300 256GB mSATA SSD. It uses new IMFT 20nm flash, but is that a good thing?

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.

This data transfer test uses both compressible and incompressible data with both large and small files sizes. The 20nm flash obviously came from hell, spawned from the devil himself.

 

When a 128GB class drive with the same controller manages to outperform a 256GB drive, something is wrong and that something wasn't ADATA or SandForce's fault.
