Super Talent 128GB SATA II SSD

ATTO Disk Benchmark

ATTO Disk Benchmark
 
ATTO Disk Benchmark is another favourite at the OC3D Hq, it seems to be one of the older utilities which is in service but it still helps sort the wheat from the chaff.  ATTO is particularly good for testing SSD performance, all tests were run with the default settings of 0.5KB through 8192KB transfer sizes, with a total length of 256MB.  Key stages of the benchmark are included in the graphs below.
 
  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Results Analysis 
 
As with the CrystalDiskMark benchmarks the Super Talent FTM28GX25H puts in a stirling performance when it comes to the Write tests.  It has no problems beating both the OCZ Summit and OCZ Vertex drives in all but one of the Write benchmarks.  The read perfomance is also very close only losing out to both of OCZ's offerings in the 32k Read test.  I ran this particular test in total 15 times due to the result difference between the drives, convinced that something must be wrong.  I was unable to improve on this test result for some reason.  As with the previous tests, the results of the SSD's outshine the old mechanical drives by a large margin.
 
Move along for some PC Mark Vantage results.

SSDs are easily the most desirable piece of hardware around. Silent, super fast, cool. This one is fast and reasonably priced. What's more to ask?

It scores 10 on the VB want-o-meter.

In a climate where we often see the judgement of particularly graphic cards as a matter of /fps, despite the performance. Would it be a reasonable request to add /G at the bottom of the comparison table for the range of tested drives ?

Could be a good inclusion in cpu comparisons also being as, looking from the gaming pov, anything above a 3.2g (or so) P4 is regarded as a "minimum" requirement.

Hi Rasta,

Its a good idea and something i was going to include with this review, but as I was unable to find a uk price for the drive it would be unfair to just convert the $ to as we know that just does not happen when it comes to pc hardware. If i can find a uk price in the future its something I will be sure to include

VB,

100% Agree with you fella, now I would love to find out how they would perform in a raid 0 setup Will have to wait until their available in the uk though.

When you say /G do you mean per GB???

If it's to be likened to the /FPS comparison, then surely it would need to be /Read & Write speed.

Think I know what I'm getting at.

Hi Bungral

Nope /G should b3 cost per Gb as in Gigabyte.

Pound cost per Gigabyte.

Say a 128Gb drive costs 300 that would be 128 divided by 300 giving you an approc cost of 2.34 per Gigabyte for the drive

Hope thats makes sense. Doing as per read/write speed wouldnt work.

Cheers

Yeah that's what I said... /GB

But my point is that if take the ratio on the GFX card which is basically the cost divided by the performance, then doing /GB isn't really cost by performance. It's cost by capacity.

I get that HDD's are generally considered on their capacity, but then it's difficult as performance should be factored in.

Yeah cost per gb is the way to go.

It's arguable that the gfxcard's primary concern is to put up a display, but it's critiqued on fps amongst other things.

All things being equal, a hard drive's primary concern is to store information, it's speed to do so may well be it's critique.

However if the gfxcards had 128m of memory on the one hand and 1g on the other, the matter that the 128m model ran crysis on a 320x200x8 screen at 2000fps would be neither hear no there.

UK shop selling this? or do we import and wait 4 months but get t cheaper :S

Oh and I have Super Talent DDR3 2000MHz Dual Channel RAM its the fricking shiznit. 2016MHz on AIR :O summer will stop this though and it will return to 2005MHz

Will oc3d be doing any reviews of the PCI-Express based SSD storage?
