OCZ Agility 3 (240GB) Reviewby Anand Lal Shimpi on May 24, 2011 2:53 AM EST
AS-SSD Incompressible Sequential Performance
The AS-SSD sequential benchmark uses incompressible data for all of its transfers. The result is a pretty big reduction in sequential write speed on SandForce based controllers.
Even Iometer's incompressible data isn't able to completely defeat SandForce's algorithms, but AS-SSD seems to do a better job. Here the Agility 3's performance really suffers, particularly in the sequential read test:
The Agility 3 is about the speed of the old Vertex 2/Corsair Force F120 here.
