SF-2200 Benchmarks

 

Yesterday we ran the OCZ Vertex 3 through our standard set of benchmarks and I chose a few to showcase today in the introduction to the SF-2000 client controller. These tests should be prefaced with a little information about the tests. To get the most out of your SF-2200 SSD you will need to pair it with either a Sandy Bridge motherboard or a high performance RAID controller like the LSI 9260-8i or Areca 1880 Series. The X58/Marvell combination motherboard will get you close to peak performance, but close doesn't mean 500MB/s read and write speed.

 

ATTO Baseline Performance

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34

 

ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.

The OCZ Vertex 3 surpassed our expectation and delivered exceptional read speeds of over 550MB/s and write speeds of around 515MB/s. These are remarkable numbers in this test and close to twice as fast as the previous generation Vertex 2 that uses the SandForce SF-1200.

 

PCMark Vantage - Hard Disk Tests

The real world testing in a clean state was just as impressive. Here we see the Vertex 3 taking off like a rocket and showing why many reviewers are calling the Vertex 3 the fastest SSD ever made. The Vertex 3 as tested managed to outperform all other drives across the board.
