Thread Starter

post #2 of 22
This should make it clear for you matey

EDIT: i forgot to add that Crucial has had a few firmware updates that improve performance even further since this test.

Ah hah something i am familiar with... well depends on how you define better. Ive got a ton of usage out of both of these (510s and M4s) and never had a problem both are rock solid drives...brass tax says the 510 is faster but the m4 is half the price...so calling one better is a personal thing

Edit:
also did not read that review before i posted lol

Oh for all versions of both drives, the Intel 510 is more expensive than the M4 for more than half?
post #5 of 22
The Intel drive is more expensive and slightly faster but the M4 is a better drive for the money.

But the M4 is better in random 4k speeds, right?

Also, what is the difference between sequential and random 4k speeds anyway? What do sequential speeds do for the OS SSD?

Sequential is basically the ability to read things in order. Basically 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Random is out of order on command. 5 2 8 6 1 9 3 7 4 10. It takes longer to read a random order versus sequential.

For the OS, it help a lot if your drive isn't fragmented with things such as booting up since things loaded are done in a particular order (sequential).

For a game where random assets are called this would be random since the computer cannot predict if you are going to turn left or right.

Ahh. So for bootup speeds, the Corsair Force GT (my current SSD) would be better than the Crucial M4?

That would depend on how much of the info being loaded during startup is compressible.

Since most data is compressed somewhat, I'd expect the two drives to be very close on boot up.

So where (what everyday processes) can you feel the increased 4k read speed of the M4 compared to that of the GT?

The GT having higher read sequential speeds means it produces faster boot?
