Intel SSD 510 Series (250GB)


When it comes to performance, Intel has made a few compromises with the 250GB SSD 510 Series. These are seen primarily in its random-read and random-write specifications. Whereas the 160GB second-generation X25-M was rated for up to 35,000 IOPS of...

Strong performance, particularly in sequential reads and writes. Supports 6Gbps SATA

Slow random-access speeds compared with competing drives. Relatively expensive

The SSD 510 Series, Intel's replacement for its once–industry leading X25-M drive solid-state drive, turns out fine numbers in some circumstances, but its random-access speeds may be a turn off for more advanced power users.

SSD 2011 roundup: Crucial M4, OCZ Vertex 3, Intel 510/320


With throughputs of up to 500 MB/s, the new generation SSDs are a mouthwatering prospect on paper. These sequential speed scores need to be put in context however and the dip in random access reads takes them below the Crucial C300s in terms of...

Intel SSD 510 Series 120GB Review


We hope to get our hands on the smaller 120GB version of the OCZ Vertex 3 as it's said to be considerably slower than the 240GB model we've tested and this would level the playing field a bit. Until then, it's going to be difficult to make an accurate...

Intel SSD 510-Series 250 GB Review: Adopting 6 Gb/s SATA


After defining the high-end SSD market with its X25-M, Intel is finally ready with its first 6 Gb/s solid-state drive, the SSD 510-series. Does ...

My guess would be that Intel uses half as many of the same NAND modules on its 120 GB SSD 510. In the real-world, you’d really need to push a lot of concurrent requests to best demonstrate the difference between the two drives, though—and as we’re...
