Intel X25-M, round 2 : 10 SSDs compared
by Marc Prieur

File copying
This brings us to file copying. We measure reading and writing of diverse groups of files. These groups were composed of:

- A collection of large files: 6 files (on average 2.2 GB) totalling 13.2 GB
-Medim sized: 7.96 GB of 10,480 files (each averaging 796 KB)
-Small sized: 2.86 GB of 68,184 files (each averaging 44 KB)

The source or target of reading or writing on the drive was a RAID of three VelociRaptor 150 GB drives.


Reading large files the X25-M scores over a hugely impressive 240 MB /s plus! Note however that once the size of files falls, performance drops back to a level comparable to other drives and not very far off a standard hard drive.


Write speeds are the weak point on this Intel SSD. Happily however although speeds for large files are slow, performance with small files is ok.
