Are the read/write of SSD real? Tags: SSD HD Movies Storage Last response: June 6, 2012 1:01 AM in Storage Share darkstar845 June 6, 2012 12:52:20 AM Some SSD have a specification of read:550 MB/s and write:520MB/s. Are these speeds theoretical or is that the real speed most of the time when you are reading and copying large files like HD movies.

It comes down to compressed data vs incompressed data. And you have to use SATA 3 ports to achieve those speeds. These are the benchmarks from last year 2011, they don't have a 2012 version yet: http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/ssd-charts-2011/benc...
