OCZ Vector SSD (256GB) - A Challenger to Marvell & SandForce

Results - HD Tune Pro 4.6

HD Tune Pro 4.6 Results

After the impressive performance on AS SSD and CrystalDiskMark, we were hoping for a similar showing on HD Tune Pro 4.6, but we were left disappointed. Read performance was significantly below par, something that seems to be the trend with OCZ drives as the Vector, along with the Vertex, recorded much slower read speeds than the competition. Write speeds were about as quick as the current crop of high-end SSDs.

In the past, OCZ drives had problems with the random read and write tests and the Vector is not different. Random read performance was abysmal, recording a mere 2 IOPS. However, random write performance was much better, with the Vector managing 903 IOPS - only the Intel SSD 520 Series was faster. 


The Good
Impressive performance in most tests
Read/write performance were equally consistent
In-house developed controller and firmware
The Bad
No frills or accessories
Commands considerable premium over other high-end SSDs
