I switched from a 2010 120GB Intel Postville SSD to a 2013 250GB Samsung 840 EVO SSD and don't notice any differences in day-to-day scenarios like opening applications etc., it was fast before and it is still fast. Tbh., SSD benchmarks are really uninteresting at this point as 99% of the people don't copy huge files all the time and just use their applications/games. The Intel SSD is now sitting in my Thinkpad X121e with an old AMD E-350 APU and it runs great there.
No announcement yet.
