Intel rates the X25-M with a 250MB/s read speed and a 100MB/s write speed. When using the same methods as other manufacturers we found that Intel was selling their 120GB drive short.

In our testing we achieved 272MB/s read and just over 127MB/s write speeds. This is a fairly marginal increase over the 80GB G2 drive we tested previously, but still way below the 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write speeds of the SandForce SF-1200 drives.
