Not sure what they mean, but here are 2 benchmarks of an Intel 320 series 80 gig SSD, about 2 months old:

My Intel 320 120GB is about the same.

Those look like good numbers to me.

Benchmarks are okay but it is like the WEI- just a number.

It is how it works for you that counts.

Hoppy:

Thanks for the comment. The plain truth is that the only time I notice that I have an SSD rather than a spinning drive is when I boot: boot times decreased from circa 50 seconds to about 30 seconds. Other than that, I never notice it. Not that I expected anything else. Unless it fails outright, I may never buy another boot drive.

As I stated in post #1800 where I REALLY noticed the difference was going back to the HDD for a few hours.

I have almost everything on my SSD.
Of course videos, vacation pics (close to 1.5GB) and big games go on the HDD.
I still have 55GB of free space.

That's what I was going to tell ignatzatsonic. Create a small partition on a spinner and clone your SSD to the spinner and use that for awhile. You'll notice then I bet. I'm just curious about the 320's. I seem to get just as good or better tests with my 80GB X25.

Admittedly, this is the best numbers I have.

Yeah, I am toying with the idea of putting at least some data on the SSD. I have about 50 free gigs on it that may as well be used.

It certainly could hold ALL of my text files and ALL of my jpegs---they total under 10 gigs. The only thing that would have to go on a spinner is video and mp3s.

Maybe I will split the SSD into C of 55 or 60 and D for the entire remaining 15 or 20, with D holding text files and jpegs. I just have to decide how that appeals to my sense of organization---I've always kept ALL data on D.

Essenbe you have a partition to run the Benchmarks in. I think you said you do.????

Ignat and I are running benches on "C" so lower scores. So I have read stated by many.

EDIT:
AS SSD web site doesn't state anything about this.

Though I have seen this mentioned by many people for using some of the benchmark software.

I don't know how is that!

No, I don't have a partition for testing. That is the whole SSD with OS and programs. Look at the top left of AS SSD it shows the size. But, I have heard that for benchmarks, you get a better scote testing empty space. I have never tried it. I have benchmarks on every drive I have and comparasons between my Vertex2 and the Intel. I just find it intresting. Even though I do the benchmarks, I find they are pointless and really mean nothing. Benchmarks are no measure of actual performance in real life.

I don't know why and have never tested it. But I have heard several places that benchmarks only approach rated speeds on an empty drive. My guess would simply be that the data slows it down. I've always heard also that filling a SSD will dramatically slow it down. Many of the 'expert' web sites say not to go beyond 80% full. I was reading on Intel forums the other day that if you partition your drive and leave the last partition unallocated, the speed will be faster and that the controller would use the unallocated part to replace worn cells. I haven't ever tried that either and have no intention to. I'm happy with the speed I have now and don't think another .01ms faster would make much difference.
