Intel SSD 510 Series (250GB)

 

The 250GB Intel SSD 510 Series solid-state drive delivers some impressive speeds, but some compromises are required.

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

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

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...
