We know that there are several reasons that larger SSDs perform better than their smaller compatriots. More flash memory means more channels for the data to traverse, which has a very noticeable effect on SATA 6Gb/s drives. The Tech Report demonstrates just how effective a larger SSD can be, with 10 SSDs ranging from 120GB up to 300GB as well as having a healthy mix of different 25nm flash and a variety of controllers. As you’d expect Sandforce continues their dominance by simultaneously offering better performance and a lower cost than Intel’s SSDs. Of course, the stability and durability of those drives is a hot topic right now.
"Fresh from rounding up a collection of the latest 120-128GB solid-state drives, we’ve turned our attention to a pack of 240-300GB models to see how SSD performance scales as one climbs the capacity ladder."
