The Sandisk Extreme II uses the 88SS9187-BLD2 controller, Marvel's latest, and Sandisk's own 19MM MLC Memory. On paper this makes an extremely good combination and the benchmarks agree. The Extreme II scored an impressive 1143 in the server orientated AS SSD Benchmark putting it amongst the more capable server drives. In terms of real world consumer performance the Extreme II also fared well achieving a real world speed index score of 570.5 MB/s, amongst the top three scores we have seen to date. The Extreme II has everything going for it apart from its price which is currently significantly above average and hurting its value rating. Because the Extreme is the newest SSD we have in our group test we expect prices will drop with time. Until then, however, there is better value to be had elsewhere. [Jun '13 SSDrivePro]

The Evo is remarkable in that, like the Sandisk Extreme II, it features a second level cache. For the 250 GB Evo this consists of a 3 GB Turbowrite cache (TWC) which is a block of high speed Flash Memory. When the TWC is exhausted write speeds drop by approximately 50% but that won't often happen under typical consumer workloads. In terms of raw performance, even with its cache, the Evo still isn't the fastest drive. With a real world speed index reading of 439 MB/s the EVO is however, within reach of the two speed leaders (Vector and 850 Pro). At a price point of $130 the Evo is around 30% cheaper making it the best value for money SSDs I have seen in 2014. Comparing the Evo and the Sandisk Ultra Plus shows that the Evo is the winner but the Sandisk may be a viable alternative thanks to its cache-free, and therefore more consistent performance during extended writes. [Aug '14 SSDrivePro]
