OCZ Vertex 3 240GB Solid State Drive Review

Testing – AS SSD Benchmark
Our final test is the AS SSD Benchmark. This benchmark contains four synthetic as well as three practice tests. It also not only shows you the transfer speeds but also IOPS.

AS SSD also uses random data like CrystalDiskMark so you will see lower performance during write tests.  The read test was great scoring 506.68MB/s.  Also OCZ’s claim of 60K IOPS seems to be true as you can see the 4K-64Thrd score of 56037 IOPS.

The AS SSD program has a copy benchmark included with it.  This benchmark shows you the speed and how long it would take to load an ISO, Program and Game.  Here are the results from that test, lower scores are better.

The newer versions of the AS SSD program have a compression benchmark included as well.  Here are the results from that test.
