We use CDM to look at 4K and 4K at queue depth (NCQ) performance. The Vertex 3 has just a slight advantage over the Vertex 2 in 4K single command performance but once we start stacking up commands things get interesting. At 4 commands the Vertex 3 is actually slower than the Vertex 2 but at 32 commands the the Vertex 3 takes off and is able to deliver nearly 200MB/s.

The 4K write performance is nearly the same as the Vertex 2 240GB, but in this case the 4 and 32 queue depth really take off and outshine everything else we've tested before.
