Crucial Adrenaline 50GB SSD – Benchmark

Standard

In this test, we will have a look at the performance of the Crucial Adrenaline with 50 GB. This SSD takes a different approach as the previously tested SSDs. Find it out here.

Introduction

The new Crucial Adrenaline comes with “only” 50 GB of storage (find it here). But this have a special reason. They can also be used as a normal drive, but with the supplied software Dataplex they should fulfill a different purpose. Through this software, the SSD can be setup invisible, and serve only up as a caching SSD. So the old HDD drive and all data and frequently used data are then processed on the SSD.
A performance boost can only be recorded after several calls of a program. The Crucial technicians recommend to open the programs at least 3-4 times before really starting them.
