Crunching the numbers

And to round it off, ATTO confirms the same results as seen in the previous tests. This drive is really pushing the limits of its 3Gb/s Sata controller.

Samsung Series 470

I must say I rather like this drive. It’s priced almost identically to Intel’s 320 drives, but does seem to have a slight performance edge over them. It may not be available in such large capacities, but it you’re looking for a drive on a budget you won’t be opting for 500GB or more, anyway.

Verdict

RH Editor's Choice

No matter if you just want a 64GB boot drive or you reckon your whole system will fit on 256GB, Samsung’s latest delivers what it promises and as such, is deserving of a large chunk of your attention.

Even if the current Sata limitations cramp your style, this is certainly a line of drives worth watching, even if you don’t grab one this generation. I for one am looking forward to 6Gb/s Sata offerings from Samsung in the future. ®
