HD Tune Pro - Sequential Performance


Version and / or Patch Used: 5.50




It's not difficult for modern SSDs to reach the upper limits of SATA III when reading data from the drive. Even with a four-channel controller, the Plextor M6M 256GB is able to deliver a lot of data to the user.




Writing data is more difficult, but the M6M does reasonably well, even though this is the only four-channel model on the chart today.



HD Tach - Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes


Version and / or Patch Used:




After a reasonable amount of sequential and random writes to the Plextor M6M 256GB mSATA drive, we tested it with HD Tach to look for any performance loss. The drive does well for more than half of the test, but the write performance eventually drops to very low levels.
