OCZ Vertex 4 256GB Solid State Drive Firmware 1.4.1.5 Testing - Benchmarks - Passmark

It became clean in our initial test that the Vertex 4 would have to work for the crown. Kings aren't made overnight so OCZ plotted a course to the title and are working to pick off the competition one by one.

Many users complain that I/O Meter is too complicated of a benchmark to replicate results so my quest to find an alternative was started. Passmark has added several multi-user tests that measure a hard drives ability to operate in a multi-user environment.

 

 

The tests use different settings to mimic basic multi-user operations as they would play out on your server. Variances is read / write percentage as well as random / sequential reads are common in certain applications, Web Servers read nearly 100% of the time while Database Servers write a small amount of data.

 

The Workstation test is the only single user environment and will be similar to how you use your system at home.

In Passmark's enterprise tests we see roughly the same database and workstation numbers we had with 1.4RC. The file server and web server scores did drop which has us a little puzzled given their sequential tests mostly.
