He said this was the Intel 320 Series 128GB drive. As far as I know
there is no officially 128GB model of that drive, but the 120GB model
(that being the advertised capacity after overprovisioning et cetera)
was reviewed in depth by The Tech Report back in 2011:
The article includes spec-sheet information and detailed benchmark
results. Glancing over them again, I'm not surprised by this described
result from that drive; there are other SSDs that might do much better.
