Given their target market, I'm surprised they think the usual sequential
read/write speeds will impress anyone (I just ran CDM on an old Vector
512GB, it does 521MB/sec seq. write no problem, with an AS-SSD
score of 1091, but then most decent models will be as quick from that
era onwards, except crippled ones like the M500).

I'm far more interested in 4K random/read write, as that's the main thing
which varies across top-end SSDs these days, along of course with
steady state behaviour, how it handles being filled beyond 50%, etc.

Ian.

It's not m500 that is crippled, but more like 840evo and others using cheap tricks to get better sequential write speeds. Not that it matters much on ssd, but it sells...

impressive that they keep fitting the space in there.... tough the burn rate keeps getting pretty high ... losing 40gb for burn rate on the 960gb model.

More interested in idle and nominal operating power, with little weight on peak power. Most new PC designs are getting more and more power conscious. So power consumption is quite important.

It is IMO (I don't mean deliberately by Crucial, rather it's just poor), eg. the write performance
of the M500 120GB is terrible, not even half the speed of an old Vector 128GB. The larger
capacity versions are better, but still not great. The poor write speeds ruled them out as AE
cache drives fo me. Ok for general stuff I guess, but other models are better.


milktea, I doubt the relevant target market cares much about power. ;) Such users probably
have juice-hungry CPUs, GPUs, etc., anyway.

Ian.
