HD Tune Pro - Sequential Performance
Version and / or Patch Used: 4.55
OCZ's architecture misleads this test since OCZ has limited QD1 read and write performance at the test block size. The drives look slower here than what they actually are. We'll see sequential numbers in CDM on the bottom of this page.
Looking at the ARC 100, Vertex 460 and Vector 150, we see the ARC 100 comes in just under the Vertex 460 at QD1 sequential read with the 64KB block size.
The sequential write performance comes along in the same order with Vector 150 delivering higher performance than the Vertex 460, with ARC 100 just behind. What you can also see here is that the performance difference isn't all that great.
This is a good thing for consumers because it means the performance per dollar is actually a much better ratio than the Vector 150. This chart is also a misleading because OCZ's architecture limits the second half of the drives transfers.
HD Tach - Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes
Version and / or Patch Used: 18.104.22.168
After some preconditioning with sequential and random data, we ran HD Tach to see the true 128KB block transfers with sequential data. The OCZ ARC 100 doesn't act like a value SSD, the performance isn't that far off from OCZ's flagship Vector 150 and even closer to the Vertex 460.
Crystal Disk Mark
Version and / or Patch Used: 3.0 TP1
CDM gives us a better look at the sequential performance on the ARC 100. Both Vector 150 and Vertex 460 are higher, but after reading the rest of this review, you will not care about the synthetic performance numbers.
