The Intel 330 is just under two years old and sports a Sandforce 2281 controller coupled with Intel's own 25nm MLC NAND. This combination typically produces a performance profile that struggles with incompressible data and favours reading over writing. With peak and average sequential read/write speeds of 514/138 and 414/122 the Intel 330 is unable to compete in today's market and falls over 50% short of the group leaders which manage peak sequential read/write speeds in the 500/300 MB/s region. Small file 4K peak and average speeds are better and clocked in at 32/89 and 24/63 MB/s which is 10% below the group leaders. Overall the 330 has an effective speed of 370 MB/s which makes it one of the slowest 128GB SSDs I have seen to date. [Feb '14 SSDrivePro]
