OCZ Vertex 3 240GB SSD VTX3-25SAT3-240G Review
30 November 2012
Summary: On the test
bench today is a speedy little black box called the OCZ Vertex 3. If you haven't spoiled your computer yet with a Solid State Drive (SSD) yet, now's the time -- SSDs have never been more affordable!
Summary: As we said earlier, there are two versions of SandForce 480GB drives manufactured with the SF-228X and synchronous flash. The first we reviewed today that uses 16 NAND ICs, but a few other companies went with a slightly modified controller (SF-2282) and 32 NAND ICs.
Excerpt: Our first 240GB Vertex 3 in-house was a pre-production unit with early firmware that left it slower than the 120 model we looked at later. We now have the retail 240 in and are even more impressed.
Conclusion: The performance on offer from OCZ's Vertex 3 is simply mind-boggling. In the space of a single generation, the speed of the Vertex SSD has jumped by over 90 per cent, leaving OCZ with a drive that runs circles around most of the competition.
Summary: Final Thoughts
If you were expecting this drive to be one of the fastest 2.5-inch solid state drives available then you would be right. The Vertex 3 is the fastest solid state drive we have tested to date, it even beat out OCZ’s own RevoDrive!
Pros: – Impressive scores of 554MB/s read and 522MB/s write in ATTO, – 56037 IOPS score, – 3 year warranty, – Best performing solid state drive we have tested to date!
