3 Big data security analytics techniques

Quick as a Flash?

Evidently, Samsung has made a good job of building the uprated controller in the 830. If the performance of the OCZ Vertex 3 is anything to go by, then it’s certainly more than a match for the Sandforce SF2000 controlled drives. The last test shows the true value of the Sata 3 6Gb/s interface over the previous Sata 2 3Gb/s one. The 830 copies the file folder in well under half the time of the 470.

Samsung quotes sequential read and write figures for the SSD 830 256GB version at 520MB/s and 400MB/s respectively, and judging from the ATTO benchmark results that pretty much on the money and in fact the review drive managed to squeeze out a few more MB/s for both read (546MB/s) and writes (408MB/s) above Samsung’s figures.

Both the read and write figures drop a little during the more demanding AS SSD, CrystalMark and HD Tach benchmarks, but still are pretty impressive.

Verdict

RH Recommended Medal


I really like Samsung’s SSD 830 and it shows that its predecessor, the SSD 470 was no flash in the pan. While it may be more expensive than, for instance OCZ’s Vertex 3, it does come bundled with some powerful and very useful utilities. Moreover, in terms of performance, the Samsung SSD 830 delivers some serious competition to its Sandforce equipped rivals. ®
