Average Bench: 67.6% (450th of 929)

Based on 1,620 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]
