Ideally we would've benched the larger 250GB version of the 510 Series as the majority of the high-end SSDs tested were around this size, but unfortunately Intel couldn't provide us with a review sample in time. This placed the Intel SSD 510...

The engineers at Intel have done an incredible job tuning the firmware of their 510 Series to suit the needs of today's consumers. Especially in our ISO file copy and game patching benchmarks, the Intel drive plays in a completely different league...

Solid State Drives or SSDs for short are slowly becoming the preferred choice of PC performance enthusiasts with their faster access times and quiet operation. Previously, Western Digital’s Raptor series held that top spot with its 10,000rpm drives,...

The SSD 510 Series, Intel's replacement for its once–industry leading X25-M drive solid-state drive, turns out fine numbers in some circumstances, but its random-access speeds may be a turn off for more advanced power users. Buy it...

Despite this, Intel’s 510 series is a serious performer and could likely be capable of more under the right conditions. So, if you’re a die-hard Intel fan still clinging to your X-25M but wishing it was more, then you’ll probably...

Although Intel SSDs are far from being omnipresent on the market, those who have had the chance to use them are certainly convinced that these are top-notch devices. When Intel’s first SSDs were presented back in 2008, namely X25-M, it was clear...

Intel's 250GB 510 Series drive is a sterling performer especially if you want to move large files around - but with the new SandForce SF-2000 controller-equipped drives already appearing on the shelves, the timing of its release is unfortunate, to...

Intel’s move away from making its own drive controllers has come as a surprise, and the Intel 510 120GB didn't feel like the well-rounded SSD we expected. Compromises have been made in terms of random read and write performance to ensure high...

Mind-blowing performance, but it comes at an equally staggering price....

Intel's latest SSD has incredible file transfer performance in almost every situation, although it carries a massive price premium over conventional hard disks. It’s also unlikely that it will look quite so fast against SSDs from other...

Code-named Elmcrest, Intel’s 510 series drives use 34nm flash memory and come in 120GB and 250GB variants; we tested the latter.Compared to existing Intel SSDs, Elmcrest hikes performance substantially. Intel rates the 250GB drive at 500MByte/sec...

Nobody panic. Intel is still coming out with its much-delayed third-generation solid-state drive. The 320 Series will use 25nm NAND and Intel’s latest controller, on 3Gb/s SATA, and will focus on what made Intel drives great: high read speeds and...

After around four weeks the Intel SSD 510 series left a good impression, although some weak spots have become apparent. The data rates over SATA 3 with a maximum of 6 GBit/s are more or less in line with the marketing claims of 500 MB/s for reading...

Any new Intel product arrives with huge expectations, and the company usually delivers on one of two fronts: price or performance. Yet, at £220, the 120GB Intel 510 Series SSD struggles to deliver on either. With a heavy focus on sequential...

I have to admit, the first time I heard Intel was using a 3rd party Marvel controller my stomach turned around. The previous success of the X25 series SSDs was mostly tied to the usage of Intel's own ICs, including their proprietary controller....
