Thanks very much for the test!
Tourane's result seems to contradict most other results I've seen for the 701 which show a lower read speed. Here, it's clear that the SSD in the 701 clearly does perform almost as well as the 4GB SSD in the 900 and the 16GB in the 900 is slower than both!
Things I've noticed about the 16GB SSD from these graphs.
- Write speed is about 50% the speed of the 900 4GB and 66% the speed of the 701 4GB for all transfer sizes.
- Read speed for small files is superior to both the 900 4GB and 701 4GB for files 4KB and smaller, and slower for files 8KB and above, with about 70% speed of the 900 4GB and 90% the speed of the 701 4G in its worst case.
I was also surprised to see it lagging behind the performance of the 701 4GB. My theory is that later 701 revisions might include faster drives.
