Sandisk Ultra 3D & WD Blue 3D 1TB SSD review

First 3D NAND-SSDs of Sandisk and WD tested

By


Hardware.Info SSD Performance Score 2017

Last up, the Hardware.Info SSD Performance Score 2013-2015. This score is determined by taking the geometric mean of the most important benchmarks (AS SSD, Iometer 4k R/W, Iometer seq. R/W, PCMark 7, PCMark 8, and both continuous activity tests) and normalizing it, so that the best performing SSD from our last mega round-up (the OCZ Vector 150) has a score of 100 points.

On average the WD Blue 3D is slightly faster than the Sandisk Ultra 3D, but we cannot say there are any noticeable differences. The performance level is about the same as that of the Crucial MX300 and slightly below the Samsung 850 Evo.
