Looking at the benchmarks of two SSDs on today's market, one by Samsung and one by OCZ, I noticed something interesting between them. Samsung had faster reads than writes. While the Vector had roughly equal write/read throughput.
Read Write Samsung 515 MB/s 491 MB/s OCZ 497 MB/s 467 MB/s
Benchmark used is Blackmagicdesign's Disk Speed Test. I have noticed similar results with other SSDs.
Why is this the case? Is the read speed of a SSD equal to the write speed, or is it faster?
