Storage Bench v1.0 (Background Info)
Storage Bench v1.0 is our home-grown trace, which replays the first two weeks of I/O activity on a desktop workstation. Because it includes several software installations, the trace incorporates quite a bit of compressible and incompressible sequentially-written information.
The 240 GB SSD 335 appears to be just a hair slower than the 180 and 240 GB SSD 330 drives. For all intents and purposes, however, we'll consider them equivalent.
PCMark 7 involves more compressible data, which is why the SandForce-based drives jump out in front. Again, the 240 GB SSD 335 is very similar to the SSD 330 before it.
