OCZ Technology Agility 4 256GB Solid State Drive Review - Benchmarks - Test System Setup and ATTO Baseline Performance

At less than $1 per GB right out of the gate, this OCZ SSD is already a making waves, but can it still float after Chris gets finished with it?

We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: AVADirect, GIGABYTE, LSI, Corsair and Noctua.

In order to fully utilize SATA III you need a system with native SATA III support. P67, Z68, Z77 and X79 systems are preferred, but AMD has made advances in their newer SATA III systems as well. Older X58 systems with Marvell based SATA III ports do not deliver the same high levels of performance, so we recommend newer systems when available.

 

 

ATTO Baseline Performance

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34

 

ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.

As claimed by OCZ in the specifications, the Agility 4 achieves just over 422MB/s read and 411MB/s write speed in ATTO.

 

While slower than the Vertex 4, the price is going to come into play with just about every benchmark. At the end of every benchmark results I see dollar signs that easily make up the difference.
