can provide several read and write speed tests for a drive at one time, and at CES 2010 it was an extremely popular tool among the various drive manufacturers. The results are presented in MB/s, and higher is better. The read and write speeds shown below were reached using Test 5 set to 1,000MB.
The Kingston drive does rather well in the sequential write test, however in the sequential read test, the Intel drive performs better. For the 4K and 512K tests, these results show the Kingston drive performs best on the 512K tests, while the Intel drive is faster on the 4K, especially the 4K write test. In both situations, the Read speed is fairly close.

has a good selection of benchmarks for various components. For the drive testing it presents read/write results as Drive Index (MB/s) and Random Access (ms). A higher score is better for the Drive Index, while a lower score is better for Random Access.
Once again, the Intel drive has better read speeds, however when it comes to random access times, the Kingston drive is better. The results are reversed for write speeds; Kingston has a much better write speed, while Intel has better random access.
