OCZ Vertex 450 Testing:
PCMark 8 Storage test. This test is used to measure the performance of SSDs, HDDs, and even Hybrid solutions but running a set of traces through real world applications to determine drive performance. Each of the routines as well as the overall scoring and bandwidth tests are used for a performance comparison with higher results indicating superior peformance.
IOMeter is an I/O subsystem measurement and characterization tool for single and clustered systems. It was originally developed by the Intel Corporation and announced at the Intel Developers Forum (IDF) on February 17, 1998. Since then, it has seen widespread use within the industry.
OCZ's Vertex 450 delivers the second highest single drive results in the PCMark 8 storage test as a single drive. In I/O Meter the drive delivers the highest IOPs and throughput in the read tests, yet delivers the lowest result in the write testing, again as a single drive. Adding the second Vertex 450 takes the performance up while keeping the same capacity as the comparison drives.
