Intel 520 Series 240GB (Raid 0 update) SSD Review

IOMeter is another open source synthetic benchmarking tool which is able to simulate the various loads placed on hard drive and solid state drive technology.


We use a custom Kitguru configuration for 4k random write and 4k random read, to measure performance.

IOPS performance from this drive is very impressive. RAID 0 scores increase significantly, to 108,008 for 4k write, and 82,556 for 4k read.
