Random performance is quite typical (and unsurprising) for SandForce.

Once again the performance drops when switching to incompressible data, although at low queue depths the write performance is still relatively good despite the drop.

Intel SSD Pro 2500 (240GB) Review

by Kristian Vättö |
Since the Pro 2500 is a SandForce drive, the capacity of one die is dedicated to RAISE parity to protect against page and block level failures.
The benefit of Opal is the fact that it utilizes the drive's built-in hardware encryption, which is more secure than software encryption (for instance software can always corrupt or be negated by malware) and does not degrade performance.
