AnandTech ran the 16 GB Nexus 7 through the Android version of its standard SSD tests using Androbench, and the in-depth results indicate the Google-branded tablet boasts “strong storage performance.”

The performance highlights:

  • — Sequential read speed at 19.8 MB/s (slower than 8 GB model, 32 GB Motorola Xyboard 10.1, and 16 GB Samsung Galaxy Nexus).
  • — Sequential write speed at 10. 47 MB/s (faster than 8 GB model, 16 GB Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and 16 GB Asus Transformer Pad 300).
  • — Random read performance at 7. 79 MB/s (faster than 8 GB model, 16 GB Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and 16 GB Asus Transformer Pad 300).
  • — Random read performance at 0.46 MB/s (faster than 8 GB model, 16 GB Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and 16 GB Asus Transformer Pad 300).

AnandTech’s Anand Lal Shimpi said the difference in IO performance “isn’t significant enough to push you towards the $250 Nexus 7 if you don’t need the extra space,” but he told folks to consider the 16 GB model an “added benefit.”
