OCZ Vertex 460 120GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - Sequential Performance

OCZ Vertex 460 120GB SSD Review
OCZ's Barefoot 3 controller has a history of performing very well in lower capacity sizes, so we wanted to get in the other capacity sizes to test. (TYO:6502)

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

 

Benchmark: measures the performance

Info: shows detailed information

Health: checks the health status by using SMART

Error Scan: scans the surface for errors

Temperature display

 

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

OCZ limits the queue depth 1 performance at 64KB, so the Barefoot 3 drives always have a poor showing in some of our early tests. This increases the user experience factor when multitasking as it keeps performance in reserve when transferring data.

Barefoot 3 also plays tricks on our sequential write test at 64KB. The first half of the test runs at very high speeds but then drops down to a low state for the second half. Since you will never write to the entire capacity of the drive at the same time under normal circumstances, this isn't an issue.

 

HD Tach - Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes

Here we see sequential performance after a number of random writes. This test uses 128KB blocks so we don't see the 50/50 split in write performance on this chart.
