ADATA Premier Pro SP920 2.5" SSD Full Capacity Roundup - Low Cost High Performance

Subject: Storage

HDTune

HDTune tests a similar level of features as compared with HDTach, but with a different access pattern. Thus provides us with an additional set of benchmark numbers to compare between storage configurations. Here we can get the minimum, maximum and average transfer rates as well as the burst rates and access times. CPU utilization has proven negligible with modern processing horsepower, and is no longer included.

HDTune's burst test gives inconsistent results. Posted here for information only.

All modern SSDs have no issue saturating their SATA 6Gb/sec link. The above chart is fairly solid proof of that.

Great to see a new entry in the 512GB/1TB market. I would argue that now the major data-destroying bugs have been worked out of the SSD controllers, the major factor in the consumer market is price/GB. I'm hoping this new entry helps to force prices down further.

we are ever so close to the ssd sweet spot, which i think is about $0.30-$0.35. $300-$350 1TB , or more importantly $175-$200 for 500GB is the point where fast silent ssd technology will be viable in every mainstream system, leaving the spinning drives for ultra budget systems and those of us who need crazy TBs of storage.

It's good to finally see a competitor for the Samsungs and that there is actually a trend to give a price break to go larger. However, the main thing I worry about is reliability with these things. Only time tells the truth there. Glad you led off with the controller.

The 512GB version would be fantastic in my new SFF build but it is a bit overkill considering I have a 2TB WD Black in there. These seem very promising.

I'll take two 256 GB ones (instead of 1 512 GB one) please. #IfYouKnowWhatIMean

Despite the slightly slower writes at that capacity, it's still a better way to go if you can go RAID-0.
