Intel quotes headline performance for the 335 at up to 500MB/s reads and up to 450MB/s writes, which we found pretty conservative.

When the drive was tested with the ATTO benchmark it produced read performance of 557MB/s, and for writes a very impressive 530MB/s..

Reviews Word on the street for the Intel 335

The P877-V Deluxe offers multiple SATA controllers from Intel and Marvell; all of the drives were connected to Intel's 6G SATA port.

Switching to the compressed data test of the benchmark produced a healthy rise in the read figure - 512MB/s - and a rise in the write performance, producing a figure of 494MB/s..

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


In addition, Intel touts the 4KB reads to hit up to 42,000 IOPS and writes up to 52,000 IOPS.

For performance, Intel suggests the 6Gbps interfaced drives will see reads at 500MB/s and writes at 450MB/s..

The shift to smaller manufacturing geometries (also called nodes) is one reason why the price of SSDs has dropped precipitously in the past few years.
by PCMag (Jun, 2013)
With the prices dropping on SSDs overall, it probably won't be too much longer until the 60Gb and 120GB drives start going the way of the dodo.
by Legit Reviews (Oct, 2012)
Currently the 240GB version is the only capacity available so those looking for a bit cheaper and smaller drive will have to look elsewhere for now.
by Legit Reviews (Oct, 2012)


Essentially the given physical capacity rating of a drive, 256GB in this case, is expressed in GB (1 GB equals 1 billion bytes) and the virtual capacity as reported by Windows and applications is expressed in GiB (1 GiB equals 1,073,741,824 bytes).

This is the part of the article we we always point out the drive capacity which can be a bit confusing for some.
by Legit Reviews (Oct, 2012)


However, we know that when new products hit the market and supply is limited, the prices will be artificially inflated so expect prices a bit higher even though there are some SSD prices wars underway.

For the Intel 335 240GB drive, the readout on CrystalDiskInfo 5.0.2 shows that both NCQ and S.M.A.R.T. are enabled, as well as TRIM and the interface is confirmed at SATA III (6Gbps).
