After defining the high-end SSD market with its X25-M, Intel is finally ready with its first 6 Gb/s solid-state drive, the SSD 510-series. Does the company's latest follow in its predecessor's footsteps, or does OCZ's Vertex 3 lineup go uncontested?
While the second-gen SandForce controllers at the heart of OCZ’s Vertex 3 drives enable superior streaming read performance, Intel’s SSD 510 follows closely behind. Sequential performance, enabled over a 6 Gb/s interface, is where these drives put their best foot forward.
We see the same situation transpire in the streaming writes benchmark pattern.
