OCZ doubles down with four SandForce controllers and 240GB of flash memory all wrapped up in a convenient PCIe card that rocked our test bench.

AS determines the performance of Solid State Drives (SSD). The tool contains four synthetic as well as three practice tests. The synthetic tests are to determine the sequential and random read and write performance of the SSD. These tests are carried out without the use of the operating system caches.

 

In all synthetic tests the test file size is 1GB. AS can also determine the access time of the SSD, the access of which the drive is determined to read through the entire capacity of the SSD (Full Stroke). The write access test is only to be met with a 1 GB big test file. At the end of the tests three values for the read and write as well as the overall performance will be issued. In addition to the calculated values which are shown in MB/s, they are also represented in IO per seconds (IOPS).

 

Note: AS SSD is a great benchmark for many tests, but since Crystal Disk Mark covers a broader range of 4K tests and HD Tune Pro covering sequential speeds, we will only use the Copy Benchmark from AS SSD.

For this round of testing we left the RevoDrive X2 configured as it shipped to us from OCZ and that configuration was a general setting that gave the best balance between small file reads and writes with good sequential reads and writes.

 

Our first RevoDrive test we ran tests with the original configuration (16K) and our 128K that favored the sequential tests. Here we see that even with the tuned version of the first RevoDrive the X2 was able to outperform our special configuration. I can't wait to start playing with the X2 BIOS and see these tests ran again with a special tune.
