Sequential transfer speed is the most critical metric for applications that work with large files. It also translates directly to performance elsewhere. However, transfers of smaller sizes can be critically important for some tasks so this is far from the only metric.
Results: SSD Peak Speed
This performance ranks right up with the best for peak transfer speed, but see the speed vs transfer size graph.
These are real world figures through the OS X file system APIs, and thus reflect the performance available to applications.
