You will find all throughput-related low level benchmarks on this page.
The transfer diagram is as beautiful as can be, showing a constant throughput of 200 MB/s for sequential read operations and a bit more than 70 MB/s for sequential writes. At this speed, the X25-M beats even the fastest 15,000 RPM SAS hard drives for servers in reads, but in writes it cannot compete with fast hard drives. If you intend to do hard disk recording or other applications with demand for fast sequential writes, there are faster options available.
The throughput tests were performed on our storage reference test system. Please refer to the test setup page for details.
