Average Bench: 68.5% (346th of 848)

Based on 691 user benchmarks.  Models: INTEL SSDSC2CT240A4, INTEL SS DSC2CT240A4

The 240GB Intel 335 Series SSD is four months older than the group leaders which average 13 months old. The hardware configuration consists of a Sandforce 2281 controller which is coupled with Intel's own 20Nm NAND flash. This particular combination is known to have relatively weak compressible write speeds, and the observed performance figures confirm this. With sequential peak and average read/write speeds of 510/234 and 367/209 MB/s the core performance profile is exactly as I would expect, very skewed in favour of reading over writing. With an overall effective speed of 434 MB/s the 335 is nearly 25% slower than the 533 MB/s group average. There are both faster and cheaper alternatives in the group test[Feb '14 SSDrivePro]

Above average average bench

The Intel 335 Series 240GB averaged 31.4% lower than the peak scores attained by the group leaders. This isn't a great result which indicates that there are much faster alternatives on the comparison list.

Strengths

Avg. 4K Random Write Speed 74.9MB/s
Avg. 4K Random Read Speed 25.2MB/s

Above average consistency

The range of scores (95th - 5th percentile) for the Intel 335 Series 240GB is 36.2%. This is a relatively wide range which indicates that the Intel 335 Series 240GB performs inconsistently under varying real world conditions.
