Spring 2010 Solid State Drive Roundup, Part 1

Benchmark Results: PCMark Vantage Application Test

Intel’s X25-M tops the group when it comes to launching applications.

The same Intel dominance applies in our gaming test.

Solidata's K5 drive takes the spotlight for Media Center performance.

Starting the operating system as quickly as possible is one of SSD's most prized capabilities. Intel’s X25-M wins again here, providing almost twice the throughput as the other drives thanks to its combination of excellent I/O performance and highest read transfer rates.

The overall score comes as no surprise. Intel’s X25-M G2 delivers top performance under typical application environments.
