HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has gained popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.

Intel's stated performance would lead you to believe the 335 will take a back seat to the 520 in performance, but our numbers show the two drives running very close to each other in many tests. Here we see the sequential read performance and both drives have an average speed of 421MB/s when working with compressible data.

Sequential write performance is also very close, but the 335 takes a 12MB/s lead. It should be stated that SSDs slow over time and our 520 Series sample has ran through four full benchmark cycles, but that shouldn't be enough to reduce the performance.
