Everest Ultimate Edition

Everest Ultimate is, as our regular readers will know, one of our favourite applications for testing all our hardware. The Random read test we've used here has given some curious results compared to the tests on the previous page.

Everest also gives us a nice graph showing the variations in read speeds throughout the test. As you can see the E10 is much more like a race engine in that it has a higher overall speed, but many more peaks and troughs, but the M10 is, although slower, far more consistent throughout the entire test.

Dirt 2

To test the loading speeds 5 timing runs were made between pressing "race" and the screen going from the loading screen to the race intro, using the first Rally Cross event at Battersea. The fastest and slowest were discarded and an average taken. Although the differences between the two drives is only half a second, it definitely felt much faster than that. But that is why we time things and test things rather than go with gut feelings.

Modern Warfare 2

Call of Duty : Modern Warfare 2 was tested in the same way as Dirt 2, using a save game at the start of the level select training mission. Timed from "continue game?" to the loading bar disappearing.

Crysis Warhead

Finally Crysis Warhead. As this takes a lot longer to load than Dirt 2 and Modern Warfare 2, and time differences should be exaggerated and sure enough the E10 shines being 2.5 seconds faster than the M10.

Ok. So let's draw a conclusion from all this.

I wonder how bad the degradation will be.Quote

As they come complete with the firmware necessary to reduce wear, then no worse than any other SSD.

Although the name is not as well known, the important parts are Samsung and Intel. Nuff said.Quote

Yeah. You can't go wrong with Samsung. They are known to do the best against degradation.Quote

Then if you read the review you gain this information before hand. So you don't ask already answered questions Quote

I was referring to firmware of the hard drive, not the physical parts. No need respond though. Thanks.Quote
