Iometer Results (Part 1)

Lastly, we put the drives through the rigorous grind of Iometer, with different workloads and I/O queue depths. We have chosen to show results from a queue depth of 1 to 5 as this better represents the workloads a typical consumer might face.

Overall, the Vertex 460 was disappointing on Iometer. Performance on the 64K streaming read and write workloads were particularly bad as it was noticeably slower than the older Vertex 450 and was one of the slower drives in this test. It picked itself up somewhat on the File Server workload but performance suffered once more on the Web Server workload as it recorded the lowest IOPs amongst the other drives tested. That said, Iometer has always been some what of an Achilles heel for OCZ drives as the Vector 150 and Vertex 460 also exhibited erratic performance on this benchmark.
