What kind of performace would I see if I put the new Intel 250GB 510 Series in my 2010 uMBP (Macbook Pro) which is limited to 3Gbps? Will there be a performace increase compared to my Intel X25-M 160GB?
On SATA 3Gb/s, the 250GB 510 will probably do:
Random Write: 5-8% better
Random Read: 20-25% worse
Sequential Write: 85-95% better
Sequential Read: 2-3% better
Why Random Read worse? Can you explain the numbers?
The 510 series use a completely different controller and firmware.
