Intel Solid-State Drive 320 Series (300GB) Review

Post Testing Read/Write Speeds (ATTO)

Benchmark Results

Something which is often a concern for consumers is the effect heavy use has on an SSD and how well the drives inbuilt garbage collection or TRIM works. To look at the impact of our testing on the 320 we ran ATTO after stressing the drive with our numerous benchmarks. As the results above show the speed we achieved was in excess of the advertised ratings, proof that the Intel drive handles heavy use well.

We also thought it was useful, for this last test, to show what users opting for a 510 series drive over the 320 could expect. The higher spec Intel drive gives users with SATA 3 capable hardware over 200MB/s advantage for read operations. Writes are nearly 120MB/s faster.
