OCZ Agility 120GB 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 long Bench test gives us an idea of the overall performance of the drive.

As you can see in the graphs below, reading is quite steady at 225.8MB/sec (average), an impressive result. Writing was performed at 160MB/sec. Random access took just 0.1ms:

The HD TunePro software confirms the previous result and gives an average reading speed of 226.8MB/sec:

The random reading tests are also satisfactory:

The writing tests showed an average speed of 161MB/secs, continuing the very good performance figures for the Agility series:

The Random write tests also look quite good:

The PCMark Vantage x64 reported a high performance for the Agility SSD:

Below you can see more tests from the ATTO Disk Benchmark, the CrystalDiskMark and AS SSD Benchmark software packages. All tests showed that the Agility series is a very good performer in both reading and writing I/O operations:

The drive scores 169 points at the AS SSD Benchmark:

Lastly, we performed some IOMeter tests using the Xtreme Benchmark template and wrote down the results. Compared to several drives we have tested so far, the Agility 120GB drive seems to be much faster than the JMikron- based products (Warp v2 and Apex), but slower (as it was expected) than the Torqx 128GB SSD model:
