Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Compare and contrast

All in all, it appears the Intel 510 is a drive that costs more and benchmarks as somewhat slower than its almost identical counterpart, with minor exceptions. While the Intel drive does achieve 20K/12K IOPS, the M4 is easily capable of 40K/30K IOPS and is rated at 40K/50K.

Intel SSD 510

Quick, but not as quick as Intel suggests

Verdict

Despite this, Intel’s 510 series is a serious performer and could likely be capable of more under the right conditions. So, if you’re a die-hard Intel fan still clinging to your X-25M but wishing it was more, then you’ll probably spring for this one.

For those of you who aren’t so loyal, you may want to be considering Crucial’s offering due to the lower pricing and larger variety of capacity options. Either way, you’ll be getting one of the best performing SSDs on the current market. ®
