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 32.4% 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.


Avg. 4K Random Write Speed 72.9MB/s
Avg. 4K Random Read Speed 24.7MB/s

Above average consistency

The range of scores (95th - 5th percentile) for the Intel 335 Series 240GB is 31.6%. This is a relatively narrow range which indicates that the Intel 335 Series 240GB performs reasonably consistently under varying real world conditions.
