OCZ Vertex 450 Testing:
Anvil Storage Utility: Anvil Storage Utility is a fully configurable tool that allows the user to test and validate the performance of the installed Solid State Drives showing both bandwidth and IOPS results. The tool will output a read score and write score along with an aggregate score much like we see with AS SSD. Not only do you get standard test routines but a myriad of options when you dig into the tools capabilities. FOr our testing we will run the default tests and report the results in chart form below for comparison.
Atto Disk Benchmark v2.47: Atto Disk Benchmark is another aged, but good hard drive benchmark utility designed to test read and write speeds for different file sizes.
At 128GB, the Vertex 450 in single drive configuration is not as impressive as the Vertex 4 in the Anvil Storage tests. Adding a second drive creates a situation where you have the same capacity and slightly lower costs, but a drive combination that outperforms the field. In the ATTO testing, the Vertex 450 delivers its rated speeds. Again the RAID 0 set delivers a significant performance upside.
