Average Bench: 82.3% (388th of 1011)

Based on 1,146 user benchmarks.  Model: ADATA SP610

The Adata Premier SP610 sports a Silicon Motion SM2246EN controller coupled with 20nm Micron flash memory, a similar combination to Crucial's recent BX100 which uses slightly slower 16nm NAND. Comparing the 256GB versions of the BX100 and SP610 shows that although the two drives are fairly evenly matched, the SP610 edges ahead in most categories (so far I have only seen only 10 samples of the SP610 so this may change with time). Although comparing the SP610 and Samsung 850 Evo highlights relatively low write speeds on the SP610 it also shows that the Adata Premier SP610 isn't far behind the market leading Evo. The SP610 has a respectable performance profile and, at current prices it's one of the best value for money SSDs available. [Mar '15 SSDrivePro]
