Great review W1z, but I personally think WEI is crap. I dont think it gives a fair view across a wide variety of HDD's.
Also, did you use WinRAR's built in Benchmark? Would that skew the results based on the cpu? Just curious.
Thanks for a great SSD review/read.
Quote : "TRIM makes sure that the drive knows immediately when blocks are freed after a file delete which give it a chance to wipe all portions of the flash chips "clean" when the drive is idling, so the cleaned areas are ready to receive new data, faster. Without TRIM, the drive would have to waste those write cycles whenever the OS seeks to write data, which happens to be occupied by deleted data, and that lowers write performance."
Does that actually mean that my Kingston SSD, with no TRIM, has to be "formatted" ones and awhile too maintain the performance??
no, the built in benchmark has no disk activity as far as i know. my test is actually unpacking data and writing to the disk as described
if these SSD doesn't have any cache, does it have the micro stutter issue?
i just don't get it why theres not at least 64MB RAM as buffer to minimize write and boost read ??
Wow that review just made me want more x-25's lol.
Yes looks like OCZ Agility 2 40GB is faster and cheaper too if compared to Corsair, then do a dual fight between those two.
Not really , rather TRIM basicly load balances the write cycles towards multiple cells, instead of rewriting the same cell over and over again , which prevents the cell being writting having a longer lifetime.
Good review tho, age of affordable SSD's are getting close
Sandforce controllers dont use the DRAM Cache because it basically has an algorithm or what have you set aside where it uses a portion of the nand chips for that issue.
