OCZ Agility 3 240GB SSD review

1. Specifications

Today we will test the Agility 3 SATA III SSD by OCZ Technology. This new series of SSDs is based on new technology and has been promoted by the company as a more cost-effective alternative to current SATA 6Gbps SSDs on the market.

The Agility 3 feature the SandForce SF-2281 SSD processor, which contributes to impressive performance figures: up to 525MB/s reads, 500MB/s writes, and up to 60,000 4KB random write IOPS.

As a mainstream SF-2281 drive by OCZ, the Agility 3 series is available in a boot-drive size 60GB capacity as well as 120GB and 240GB options, it features TRIM support to optimize performance over the drive’s lifespan and it comes backed by a 3-year warranty.

The Agility 3 retails for $140 for the 60GB model, $230 for the 120GB model and $450 for the 240GB model.

Compared to the Agility 2 series of SSDs, the Agility 3 has a new SandForce controller and MLC NAND (25nm) memory. In addition, the key difference between the Vertex 3 and the Agility 3 series, is the type of memory they use. The Vertex 3 uses synchronous NAND while the the Agility 3 uses more affordable asynchronous NAND. This gives an edge to the more expensive Vertex 3 series in terms of peak performance.

Below you see the specifications of the 240 GB version of the Agility 3 SSD (AGT3-25SAT3-240G), which we will test today:
