Seeing my recent love affair with solid state drives I thought I would test drive one of the latest greatest drives out their the 80GB intel x-25m80GB. Like a child on Christmas morning, I felt true excitement as the generic UPS envelop arrived on my porch today.
While it did not show up until late in the day, I can’t just let it sit their without starting to test it can I?
Benchmarks are running as I write this and I will provide the full breakdown of the drives performance as I finish up the tests.
But to wet your appetite, check this out:
50-50 read/write sysbench test: 1899 IO requests per second!!! Thats huge!!!
Thats compare to the 284 IOPS I got on the memoright GT, a performance improvement of 6.6x, with a higher capacity 80GB -vs- 32GB, and a Lower cost $773 -vs- $680… outstanding!!!
Here are the first unverified sysbench test runs:
|R/W||1 Raptor||1 Mtron||1 Memoright||Intel X-25m|
