With the prices of SSDs gradually and steadily coming down, they are quickly becoming must-have items for anyone looking for a faster and more responsive computer whether desktop or laptop. Intel is regarded as one of the top names in the SSD market, thanks to its production of drives that are among the fastest in the world.

To cater to a wider audience, Intel has a more affordable lineup for mainstream users in the form of the 330 Series. A recent update on the lineup has brought out the new 335 Series to take its place. As its name suggests, this new series is an incremental update to the older 330 Series.

A closer look at the specification sheet of the 335 series shows no apparent difference from its predecessor as both have the same random 4k performance, same SandForce SF-2281 controller, and same SATA 6Gbps interface. So what has changed besides the name?

The answer lies under the proverbial hood, particularly the memory chips used inside the 335 series, which are still provided by IMFT. It is still of the synchronous MLC NAND types but manufactured using IMFT’s new 20nm process. This new 20nm manufacturing process theoretically brings slightly faster and more power-efficient chips.

On our usual suite of benchmarks, we found the 335 Series to be a formidable drive despite its mainstream billing. On popular benchmarks such as HD Tune Pro 4.6, the Intel SSD 335 Series was just about as quick as Intel’s flagship SSD 520 Series. It was also comparable to other high-end SSD from OCZ, the Vector 4. Its positioning as a mainstream SSD became evident on PCMark 7, a benchmark which tests a variety of different workloads such as starting applications and video editing. The overall score of the 335 series was 4822 marks which is a significant 12% less than the SSD 520 Series. Looking at the breakdown, we can see that performance in Video Editing, Windows Media Centre, and Gaming workloads were the culprit to the lower overall score.

Taking all things in to consideration, the 335 Series boasts impressive performance for a drive that’s intended for mainstream use. For the most part, performance isn’t too far off when compared to the fastest drives you can buy.

With an SRP of US$ 210, it offers decent value as it performs almost on par with its bigger brother the 520 Series. It is also competitively priced against other high-end enthusiast-grade SSDs such as the OCZ Vector 4.
