The largest Vertex 3 has seen its cost reduced to half of what it was on launch and is still a flagship offering even though Vertex 4 is quickly catching the aging drive in performance.

Passmark Advanced Multi-User Tests

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 6.1Developer Homepage: http://www.passmark.comTest Homepage: http://www.passmark.com

 

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.

The Vertex 3, which is based on technology from an enterprise FPU, has always been a strong performance in these tests, but when it comes to the highest capacity size, the Vertex 4 takes a lead in three out of four tests.
