G.Skill Phoenix 100GB SandForce SF-1200 Solid State Drive - Benchmarks - Passmark

With OCZ holding exclusive rights to the 4K high IOPS firmware, G.Skill tries the brute force approach and pairs the SF-1200 with faster flash memory.

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.

SandForce's first controller was designed for the enterprise sector and that linage carried over into the consumer drives. This fact might have a few other enterprise SSD makers a little worried since the SF-1200 is able to perform so well at these tasks.

 

Here we see the G.Skill Phoenix running nearly identical numbers as the Vertex 2.
