OCZ Vertex 450 256GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - BootRacer

OCZ Vertex 450 256GB SSD Review
The rapid drop in 25nm flash availability and slow ramp up of 20nm production puts OCZ in a tough position. Vector availability is about to get scarce and Vertex 3.20 can't be profitable at less than $1 per GB. OCZ needs a higher profit product with the flash available today and it has to be faster than SandForce to sell, enter the new OCZ Vertex 450. (NASDAQ:OCZ)

Note: In this test we use the Lenovo W530 Mobile Workstation loaded with an operating system and several program files. The data on the drive at the time of the test is 45GB. The second test, 50GB Free, was ran with the drives filled with block data until only 50GB of free capacity remained.

When I validated BootRacer for benchmark use, SSD's were slower than they are today. After validation, I didn't pull the benchmark into the reviews until quite a bit later. Now that we're hitting the limits of SATA III, the test has lost value.

 

As you can see in the chart, most of the top tier SSD's reboot our Lenovo W530 in nearly the same amount of time.
