Intel SSD 525 Series Full Capacity Roundup - Intel Sweeps mSATA

Yapt v0.3

Yapt (yet another performance test) is a benchmark recommended by a pair of drive manufacturers and was incredibly difficult to locate as it hasn't been updated or used in quite some time.  That doesn't make it irrelevant by any means though, as the benchmark is quite useful.  It creates a test file of about 100 MB in size and runs both random and sequential read and write tests with it while changing the data I/O size in the process.  The results are a good look at overall drive performance.

All 525 Series drives matched the 520 on our YAPT testing, save the 30GB model which clearly shows its limits.

I can't wait till the 480s come down in price then maybe ill remove the 20gb slc one that came with my gigabyte mb and install the 480gb one for my main drive and use my 500gb black as a external back up for game files like Steam.
