Just off the top of my head, without doing any more research,
all browsers write every downloaded file to a temporary file cache,
and Windows also utilizes a page swapping file "pagefile.sys".
So, anytime the OS or any application program WRITEs to "cold" storage,
that WRITE must be copied to "hot" storage in the SSD.
Frankly, I don't get very excited about their performance measurements.
By comparison, we exceeded 300 MB/second with 2 x WD2503ABYX "RE4" HDDs
wired to a Highpoint RocketRAID 2720SGL in the x16 slot of an ASRock G41M-S3:
A key factor in the latter result is the 64 MB cache IN EACH HDD
+ in RAID 0 the effective HDD cache is 128 MB.

The largest "real-world" results I see in the benchmarks above are:
HDD6 Media Center 297 MB/second -- PC Mark Vantage, Synapse 64GB SSD + 1TB HDD
HDD6 Media Center 285 MB/second (Third Run) -- PC Mark Vantage with Synapse 128GB
HDD6 Media Center 298 MB/second (Second Run) -- PC Mark Vantage with Synapse 64GB
NOT ONE TEST SURPASSED 300 MB/second.
I can do much better with lots of RAM, RamDisk Plus from SuperSpeed LLC,
and a little memory management e.g. moving browser caches to such a ramdisk
