M.2 vs mSATA case study – Crucial M500 240GB & Plextor M6e 256GB
We also see significant gains in 4K speeds in AS SSD Benchmark – we get much better results when we use CPU PCI-E lanes. In the Copy-benchmark we get better results from the PCH connection, maybe we need a good Intel RST for PCI-E drives. Let’s hope also that NVMe comes fast to the consumer market, this will be another step forward for the PCI-E storage devices.
In PCMark 8 Storage Test we get an increase in bandwidth from 318MB/s to 330MB/s which translates in a very small increase in the total score.
