Unlike the WD Blue which had a Marvell 88SS1074 controller, the WD Green features a Silicon Motion SM2258XT which isn’t that big a surprise. A glance at the PCB and we notice that the SM2258XT has a RAM-less design.

Performance

For Bench marking we used CrystalDiskMark software and run the tests on both SATA 2 and SATA 3 interface. The results were surprisingly amazing when compared to the performance which is provided by the Traditional Hard Disks.

As we already said we conducted the same benchmark on the SATA 2 Interface and the results were quite Acceptable because it was the older second generation of the SATA Technology.

However the older systems like Core 2 Duo or the Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 3rd or older generations pc and laptops could get this as an additional upgrade.
During the benchmark, we found that the read speeds were at 240 MB/s and the write speeds were at 211 MB/s.

I agree to the fact that these are half of the performance of WD Green SSD 240 GB on a SATA 3 Interface, but we can’t complain about it on the SATA 2 seeing it’s price point and performance.
