OCZ Vertex 450 128GB Solid State Drive RAID Review

Testing – Anvil & AS SSD
The next test is Anvil Storage Utilities, which is a really great piece of software. The SSD benchmark gives you scores for both read and write as well as a combined score.


Anvil also includes Threaded IO tests, which test IOPS. We ran both the random read and random write tests. The results are below.



As you can see they match up pretty well to the advertised 70,000 write and 75,000 read IOPS.

Our final test is the AS SSD Benchmark. This benchmark contains four synthetic as well as three practice tests.

Not bad here, although the write score was a little lower than expected.

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 times are better.

AS SSD also has a compression benchmark included. Here are the results from that test.
