Read Transfer Performance

Memoright SSDs: The End of Hard Drives?
By

The throughput of 115 MB/s is a new record. It is especially interesting to see that it only drops to a minimum of 112 MB/s, while all mechanical hard drives deliver slower data transfer once you move from the faster outer sectors to the inner sectors of the rotating platters. A Western Digital VelociRaptor provides slightly better maximum transfer rates, but its minimum transfer speed drops to only 65 MB/s. While this is still a great result, it cannot compare to the flash SSDs.

Write Transfer Performance

A write speed of 120 MB/s is a result that might have been stimulated by the Adaptec controller’s cache memory. However, the data transfer diagram clearly shows that this drive maintains this high throughput.

File write performance competes with the throughput of the WD VelociRaptor, which is excellent for a flash-based hard drive. However, the Memoright drive is also 10x more expensive than the VelociRaptor.

Obviously, Mtron’s Flash SSD still is quicker when it comes to starting Windows XP. Yet, Memoright is the second fastest and more than twice as fast as any other mechanical hard drive.
