High-end SSD Roundup - 10 SSDs tested!
| by Anand Tuliani
High-end hardware calls for blazing fast storage devices to output results at blistering speeds. Using a conventional hard drive as primary storage would bottleneck performance in scenarios where speedy read and write operations are critical— for example, audio and video capturing/editing, 3D modelling, image editing, and so on. In such cases, using a high-end SSD works wonders. Older generation SSDs with SATA 3GB/s interface are more than twice as fast as regular hard drives. The new SATA 6GB/s interface and with high-speed controllers have changed the ball game, yet again. Plug a SATA 6GB/s SSD to a 3GB/sport on the motherboard and then connect it to a 6GB/s port—you’ll see a vast difference in transfer speeds. We tried it and noted a difference of 45 percent in speed with the same drive. The average read and write speeds of a 6GB/s SSD, when connected to a SATA 6GB/s port is around 510MB/s and 490MB/s, respectively. When connected to a SATA 3GB/s port, which has half the bandwidth of the average read and write speeds it dropped to 270MB/s and 260MB/s, respectively.
