Benchmarking the SSD

We used a couple of benchmarks to test the sequential and random read & write of the SSD. Our test system comprises of the following

  • ASRock X58 Extreme3 Mainboard
  • Intel Core i7 965 processor
  • Kingston HyperX 6GB DDR3-1866
  • PowerColor Radeon HD 4850
  • Hitachi 7K50 HDD as OS drive

The system is configured to run in AHCI mode.

SiSoft Benchmark

We ran the  HDD/SSD benchmark test for read and write.

Read performance

In the read test, we are able to achieve an average of 258.48MB/s. Although we have seen speeds crossing the 200MB/s mark, the OCZ really throws the competition behind. Kingston V series SNV425-S2/64GB only achieved 227MB/s in the same test. Interestingly, the Kingston random access time is only 20us compared to 60us on the OCZ.

Write Performance

With OCZ Vertex 2 60GB SSD, SiSoft Sandra physical disk test returns a result of 209MB/s. Kingston V series SNV425-S2/64GB only achieved 165MB/s in the same test. It is at least 40MB/s speedier than it’s counterpart. Likewise, the random access time is 120us, slightly higher compared to 70us on the Kingston.
