DRAMeXchange 2011 SSD Performance - OCZ VERTEX3 240GB

We have tested OCZ VERTEX3  240GB delivered by OCZ Technology to have a look at its performance.


OCZ Technology is a famous company targeted at professional consumers as well as enterprises, offering SSDs, memory modules and Flash products.

OCZ VERTEX3 240GB is a SATA3 interface SSD product, use SandForce SF-2281 controller, IMFT(Intel/Micron)25nm NAND Flash chips.

We chose the motherboard with Intel chipsets as the testing platform equipped with Intel i5 processor and DDR3 memory, the bench was tested under the Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux 11.04 operating system.

Details of the specifications are shown below:

SSD Evaluation Report

SSD testing results of the test are as follows:

Linux Disk Utility

Testing on Linux is good to get rid of influence from Windows filesystem (NTFS).

Burst Read scores 564.3MB/s,but average performance is lower then OCZ Vertex3 Pro, you could still see this OCZ VERTEX3 240GB perform well on read and write performance.

AS SSD Benchmark

The new benchmark of SSD is AS SSD Benchmark, it scores 655, lower than OCZ Vertex 3 Pro.

This test clearly demonstrates the performance of the SSD under various application environments. We observed the bench with many runs, monitored and analyzed the result, found a rather outstanding performance.

CrystalDiskMark 3.0.1

With the speed of write file at 494.5MB/s and the efficiency of read at 521.2 MB/s. The 4K item performance is lower than OCZ Vertex 3 Pro, the reason is the controller, not fast or powerful as OCZ Vertex 3 Pro's SandForce2682.

HDTune Pro v4.60e

We tested the average read speed and many other items in the HDTune Pro. The read and other test performances are also wonderful, at a highest speed of 338.7MB/s. The distribution of random read also looks great.

For heavy load media PC

In view of IO Meter, the outcome of 10840.135308 IOPS, you can image that in high load and multi threads, this SSD could finished the task you need very well.

In terms of comprehensive scores, OCZ VERTEX3  240GB scores very high, we recommend the product as one of the best choices of heavy load media DT or NB.
