Crucial MX200 (500GB)
Intel 730 (480GB)
Samsung 850 EVO (250GB)
We're showing all three capacity points in the charts, but comparing the results with other 480GB products. Adata's XPG SX930 480GB costs $200, and its main competitor at that price is the Samsung 850 EVO 500GB, currently selling for $177, though occasional sales take the drive as low as $150.
While Adata's published specifications show all three models at 560 MB/s in sequential reads, there are variations among the three drives in practice. The 480GB model delivers roughly 100 MB/s more read performance than the two smaller models at a queue depth of two. But at QD32, where Adata measures performance, all three versions converge with performance topping 500 MB/s.
