Samsung 470 Series 256GB SSD Review


A couple of generations ago there were a number of major players in the SSD marketplace, Indilinx was one, Intel another and then we had Samsung. Their P series of SSD's compared reasonably well with models from Intel and Indilinx, outperforming those models in tasks such as large file transfers. Since then we have seen Intel release newer generation drives, Indilinx fade away and SandForce take the performance lead with their latest controller. Samsung haven't gone the way of Indilinx though and have quietly gone about refreshing their drives and supplying large manufacturers such as Dell/Alienware with SSD's for their pre-built systems.

The latest range of SSD's from Samsung is the 470 Series with models available in 64, 128 and 256GB. Today we have the largest model attached to our main test PC and will compare it to models from Intel and OCZ in a selection of synthetic and real world tests.
