OCZ Vertex TURBO 120GB Solid State Drive

ATTO Disk Benchmark

ATTO Disk Benchmark
 
ATTO Disk Benchmark may be one of the oldest hard disk benchmark utilities still in service, but many would argue that it still remains the best. Unlike HDTune Pro and many other benchmarking utilities, ATTO can be configured to write up to 256MB of data to the disk in file sizes varying from 5KB to 8MB. This is especially useful for SSD drives and indeed RAID configurations where performance can be heavily reliant on the cluster size of the disk. All tests were run with the default settings of 0.5KB through 8192KB transfer sizes with the total length of 256MB. For clearer comparative purposes, the key stages of the benchmark are included in the graphs below:
  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Results Analysis
 
Once again we see a comparative mediocre set of results from the Vertex Turbo. Strange as it may seem, the Turbo version actually fell behind the standard version at times. Thankfully on average, the Vertex Turbo was the quicker drive out of the OCZ drives, just but could not quite keep pace with the GSkill SSD in this round.
 
Let's see what PCMark Vantage makes of the drives...

It's fast. It's also a little over £2.50 a gig, a little under when the online stores massage it a bit.

I'm interested in this optimizer, in terms of how prone it could be to screw up the disk.

1. Does the OS recognize it as being in-use. Especially in regards to closing down.

2. If there's a power-off, or maybe a power failure, would it condemn the drive.

I'm guessing it judges itself when "idle" actually is. If u happen to want to do something whilst it's in the middle of "optimizing", do u have to w8 for it to finish, or does it just break off what it's doing - indeed, is it like a sleeping drive waking up.Quote

It works just like a defrag tool m8 in that respect. It will only optimise the drive when idle. Closing the PC down will obviously read/write files to/from the drive so it will no longer be idle. Dunno what would happen if the pc shut down 'unexpectedly' while the drive was being optimised.Quote
