Hot or Not? New Samsung and Solidata SSDs


Intel’s X25 SSD family remains unbeaten when it comes to maximum throughput. The Solidata SSDs are fast, but they don’t come anywhere near 200 MB/s sustained sequential transfer rate, and they lose the write throughput comparisons. Samsung’s new 256 GB PB22-J performs very well at up to 210 MB/s and delivers a nice 174 MB/s average read performance. And it shows the highest sustained minimum sequential write performance at 144 MB/s—this is even better than the results of Intel’s X25-E.
