OCZ Vertex 3 Pro SSD does over 500MB/s

Posted on Thursday, January 06 2011 @ 18:47:21 CET by

Anand Lal Shimpi had the opportunity to play with an early engineering sample of OCZ's Vertex Pro 3 solid state disk. This new storage device has a SATA 6Gbps interface and is the first disk to use the SandForce SF-2000 series controller. The performance is pretty impressive:
OCZ’s specs are even higher than SandForce’s. This is getting ridiculous. Thankfully, OCZ let me run some of my own Iometer tests on the drives to verify the claims. Surprisingly enough, the Vertex 3 Pro looks like it’s really as fast as OCZ and SandForce are claiming. When running highly compressible data (pseudo random in Iometer) at low queue depths, I get 518MB/s sequential write speed and nearly 500MB/s for sequential read speed. Remember this is the very first version of the drive and there’s months of tweaking ahead to get it ready for production. Performance may even increase by the time OCZ actually ships the drive. Furthermore, this is the performance of a single drive with a single controller - there’s no funny on-board RAID going on, we’re just talking about the performance of a single drive.
Check it out over here.
