OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 120GB Solid State Drive Review - Benchmarks - HD Tune Pro

The OCZ Vertex 4 is out, but when it comes to performance in the 120/128GB capacity size, the Vertex 3 Max IOPS is still hard to beat.

HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:

HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.

Given its age and older firmware you might think the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS is about to get its behind handed to it by the new Vertex 4 and SandForce drives with newer firmware. You thought wrong.

When it comes to sequential reads and writes the Max IOPS is still down a little, but when SandForce releases 5.0.3, we'll see the performance pick up a bit.
