In our expanded 4K random read and write tests, we look how well each drive performed with multithreaded access.

In our 4K write latency test, which measures access times at a queue SanDisk Extreme 120GB SSD of 1, the SanDisk Extreme SSD scored excellent with chart topping response times of 0. Peak latency times were also great, measuring SanDisk Extreme 120GB SSD Using CrystalDiskMark with randomized data, we noted similar read and write speeds as what we found with our incompressible IOMeter testing, although CDM did show slightly higher 4K random read figures. Our last group of consumer IOMeter synthetic benchmarks looks at mixed-load server profiles including Database, Workstation, File Server, and Webserver. Real-World Benchmarks One thing we try to focus on with our reviews is how any given drive might perform under real-world conditions.

For the average user, trying to translate random 4K write speeds into an everyday situation can SanDisk Extreme 120GB SSD difficult. It helps when comparing drives SanDisk Extreme 120GB SSD every setting possible, but it doesn't exactly work out into faster everyday usage or better game loading times. For this reason we turned to our StorageMark traces, which include HTPC, Productivity, and Gaming traces to help readers find out how a drive might rank under their conditions. The first real-life test is our HTPC scenario.

In this test we include: In this trace we recorded 2,MB being written to the drive and 1,MB being read. Our second real-life test covers disk activity in a productivity scenario.

SanDisk SSD Plus

For all intents and purposes this test shows drive performance under normal daily activity for most users. In this trace we recorded 4,MB being written to the drive and 2,MB being read.

Our third real-life test covers disk activity in a gaming environment. The trace captures the heavy read activity of each game loading from the start, as well as textures as the game progresses. In this trace we recorded MB being written to the drive SanDisk Extreme 120GB SSD 7,MB being read.

With this faster speed though, it had a higher average response time measuring 0. Power Applying the same read and write profiles that we performed at the beginning of this review, we measure the power used by the SSD during these read or write profiles.

UserBenchmark: SanDisk Extreme GB SDSSDXG-G25

SandForce SSDs heavily rely on compression for faster speeds and less SanDisk Extreme 120GB SSD amplification, as a result we measure power with both compressible and incompressible data. We wouldn't recommend trying this at home as opening up the drive will void SanDisk's three-year warranty, but by venturing inside, we get a closer look at the ubiquitous SandForce SF processor and SanDisk's accompanying Toggle Mode NAND memory chips.

There's still room to squeeze in a further eight memory chips, and with good reason, as SanDisk plans to introduce a range-topping GB model later in the year. Rounding off the SanDisk-exclusive combination is a custom firmware described internally as version R We know that an SF processor combined with Toggle Mode NAND delivers excellent results - we've seen such a configuration in Patriot's Wildfire - but SanDisk's using higher-density SanDisk Extreme 120GB SSD chips, which in turn means that there are less NAND devices communicating with the processor in parallel. We'll see how that impacts performance over the course of the review, but on paper, the combination of the SandForce processor and high-speed Toggle Mode NAND is mighty attractive at this price point.
