    Phoronix: Intel 520 Series SSD Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux

    For those curious about the performance of Intel's 520 Series Serial ATA 3.0 solid-state drives under Linux, here are a couple open-source disk performance benchmarks comparing the 120GB Intel SSDSC2CW12 to a few other HDD/SSDs...

    There has been some discussion recently about the write latency dealing with SSDs, it might be interesting to expand out your benchmark tests to include such data (if possible?)

      I actually use one of these, thanks for the benchmark!

        It also appears to be inline with the fact that larger SSD's should perform better than small ones. When 1TB SSD's are more common and come down in price a bit, I think that will be the sweet spot for most people. I've experienced the difference between a 60GB and a 240GB so with SSD's, the bigger, the better.

          I heard recently (at least, in the last year) that some Intel SSDs have errors when writing a lot of data (like when installing linux). Does that one exhibit that behaviour? At any rate, when I choose an SSD, it's for reliability...

            Interesting. I am thinking about getting one as well. The 2 minute boot times can get quite annoying at times, and last I checked Btrfs did a pretty nice job with hybrid SSD/HDD setups, too.

            On reliability, I'm not sure what to expect... On one hand HDDs are not very reliable due to all the moving parts and using magnetic media. On the other hand, SSDs have limited writes, last time I checked, so they need load balancing in order for the data to not reach that point. Unless they improved the situation recently?

              Everyone stay the f*ck away from OCZ SSDs. Avoid them like the plague. Here is why:

                What about doing the same while trying different filesystems ? Like F2FS, Btrfs, etc...

                  is This Toms hardware? why are you Benchmarking a 64GB SSD vs 120GB vs 240GB SSD? none of them will run at the same at all in Benchmarks it needs to be 120GB vs 120GB you can put a intel 120GB vs a intel 240GB and the 240GB SSD will most likely kill it in Benchmarks

                    As said in the article, these are just some quick tests for reference purposes and done with the few drives that I have available.

                      So why do larger SSDs perform better, anyway? Assuming that they all start filled with random data, that is.

                        i really do like that System76 Gazelle Pro you have i may have to get me one some day for development (too bad they don't have Linux Mint preinstalled ) thanks for the reply sorry for being an ass

                          I think it's because they have the same memory chips, but more of them, so they more or less run them as raid0, up to the controller's limit.
