OCZ Vertex 60GB SSD

4. Benchmarks

Here is our testbed:

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-920 Retail
  • Motherboard: Asus P6T Deluxe BIOS 1201
  • Memory: Crucial PC3-1066 3x1GB @ DDR3-1600 (CL8)
  • Main HDD: WD 800JD
  • VGA: MSI 7600GT Silent
  • Windows VISTA x64 SP2 64bit with all the latest updates installed

For all the tests we made sure that the "enable advanced performance" had been was selected. We used the following benchmark software with their settings left to the default values:

  • HDTachRW v3.0.1.0
  • HD Tune v3.50 Pro
  • Crystal DiskMark v2.2.2
  • ATTO Disk Benchmark
  • ASS SSD Benchmark 1.0345
  • IOMeter v2006.07.27 with Xtreme Benchmark template

We start our tests with the HDTachRW software. The drive starts reading at 160MB/sec, accelerates to 220MB/sec at the 9GB mark and further at 230MB/sec later on. The result is an average reading speed of 216MB/sec. The writing part is almost linear at 120MB/sec. The reported random access time was just 0.1msec.

According to the HD TunePro software the drive's average reading speed was 184MB/sec:

Random reading was also fast:

The HD Tune Pro writing tests gave around 115MB/secs (read), much lower than what HDTachRW previously reported:

The Random write tests look pretty good:

Finally the PCMark Vantage x64 gave really high scores to the Vertex SSD:

Below are more tests from ATTO Disk Benchmark, CrystalDiskMark and AS SSD Benchmark. All tests showed a quite good performance in both reading and writing tests:

The drive scored 174 points at the AS SSD Benchmark

We also performed some IOMeter tests using the Xtreme Benchmark template . The Vertex 60GB drive seems to be much faster than the JMikron-based products (Warp v2 and Apex), but slower (as expected) than the Torqx 128GB SSD drive. We also found interesting that the 1.10 firmware gave better IOMeter results than the latest 1.30 version. Here you can see all the results of the drive with the Ver. 1.10 (previous) firmware installed.
