Our write transfer is 100GB in size and composed of more than 62,000 files. A transfer of this nature typically brings DRAMless SSDs to their knees, but not the SN550. A 548 MB/s transfer rate is astonishing for a DRAMless SSD and has us wondering if the newest NVMe protocol is a contributing factor.

The SN550's read transfer rate is equally impressive. The SN550 is serving up data faster than its main competition.

The DRAMless SN550 proves to be a very good gaming SSD. Take a close look at the drives that it is beating and realize that it is beating them soundly. Amazing. This is a real tier-1 user experience right here.
