Are intel ssd's are much faster than other ssd brand?
No.

They are all MUCH faster than a standard hard drive.

That's the main point. You aren't likely to notice the speed differences between one SSD and another in actual usage.

No, in fact in most benchmarks they often look like they are dragging behind. But real world usage doesn't seem lagging in any way.
