Read Tests

The G.Skill Falcon makes a strong showing right out of the gate. Here we see that the drives read performance is close to the Intel X25-M, but isn't able to take the lead in average speed. As you can see, they are running neck and neck. Read speed isn't where MLC drives lack performance, though; let's move on to write speeds.


Write Tests

I am truly at a loss for words; the G.Skill Falcon is able to double the write speed of the Intel X25-M and do it without the issues that plagued the JMicron controller drives. Here we see solid performance across the board, from minimum to maximum speeds.
