Microsoft Surface Pro shows off its inner ultrabook | Microsoft – CNET News

February 8, 2013

 

Is the Surface Pro a tablet or a laptop? Well, let’s put it this way: benchmarks put it squarely in the laptop category, leaving Apple and

Android tablets in the dust.

Chip review site Anandtech ran benchmarks on the solid-state drive in Microsoft’s new Surface Pro

tablet, underscoring the performance gap with the flash drive in Apple’s

iPad 4.

“You…get a full blown…SSD,” wrote Anand Shimpi of Anandtech, referring to Micron Technology’s C400 solid-state drive in the Surface that Anandtech tested.

The Micron SSD posted speeds of 400 megabytes-per-second when reading data and just under 200MB/s in writes.

“The fastest sequential transfer rates I’ve managed on the 4th generation iPad are typically on the 20-30MB/s range,” he wrote, adding that the flash drives in most tablets are, by comparison, “horribly slow.”
