Intel 335 80 GB SATA III 

Released January, 2013
  • 80 GB
  • 2.5" SATA III
  • 0 MB
Intel quotes headline performance for the 335 at up to 500MB/s reads and up to 450MB/s writes, which we found pretty conservative.

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).

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.

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

Benchmark Results: The typical SandForce controlled drive graph here showing the relationship between data compressibility and performance.

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

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)
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.

Even so, it's staying power is testament to the quality component it is although that depends heavily on the firmware employed.

The company has a reputation for high-quality NAND flash, and the included SSD toolbox software interfaces well with Windows and can auto-optimize an OS installation to run on solid state storage as well as manually triggering the TRIM command.
by PCMag (Jun, 2013)
We do know Intel did some serious work on their firmware to get it as bug-free as possible so from a reliability standpoint, we can't see anyone else exceeding Intel's quality on a SF-2281 drive.
by Legit Reviews (Oct, 2012)


As always, the spare area is NAND set aside for the drive to use for maintenance and drive endurance activities so there's always a fresh supply available to the controller.
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.
