I have a Intel X25-M SSDSA2MH080G2C1 2.5" 80GB. I believe partition alignment to the nand block size is important for performance on SSD's. What is the nand block size on this drive? How can I check that the partition is aligned properly?
The NAND erase blocks on Intel MLC drives are 128 pages wide. With each page being 4kB in size this results in a block size of 512kB. So, with either 0.5MB or the more widely used 1MB offset (Win7 etc.) your partitions will be aligned to the block size!
