Transcend 320 with 256GB – The benchmark

Standard

In this article, the Transcend 320 with 256 GB will be presented and tested by us for you (find it here). This SSD is the little sister of the Transcend 720. This suspicion arises because the 320 is advertised with almost identical features. The model with the smaller number, the 320 is more for a normal consumer market. The larger 720 is more for power users. How strong both differ from the values, we will find out in this test.

The Conclusion

In the AS-SSD benchmark the Transcend 320 got more than 100 points less than the 720 Version. In the daily usage you will not see this performance difference. But if you are a power user, may you should look after the bigger Version of both SSDs. – The 720 Version from Transcend.
