OCZ Vertex 3 Preview: Faster and Cheaper than the Vertex 3 Proby Anand Lal Shimpi on February 24, 2011 9:02 AM EST
Sequential Read/Write Speed
To measure sequential performance I ran a 3 minute long 128KB sequential test over the entire span of the drive at a queue depth of 1. The results reported are in average MB/s over the entire test length.

Dug - Thursday, February 24, 2011 - linkAnand,
Could you please run the Anandtech Storage Bench 2011 with 1 standard hard drive, even if it takes forever to run? I always like to see a reference as many of us don't have SSD yet.
Denithor - Thursday, February 24, 2011 - linkSeconded! Just run using like a Caviar Black drive so we can see how much better SSD is versus a top-of-the-line mechanical drive.
Would be appreciated!
mckirkus - Thursday, February 24, 2011 - linkThirded. Perspective is a good thing.
cactusdog - Friday, February 25, 2011 - linkFourthed, and i know a guy who wants fifthed.
pandemonium - Friday, February 25, 2011 - linkWould be nice for technicalities, but you can see the comparison on the 2010 version with WD's Velociraptor.
Shadowmaster625 - Thursday, February 24, 2011 - linkI would like to know how the 60GB version performs. Especially if they are cutting the number of chips in half vs the 256GB version.
DarkKnight_Y2K - Thursday, February 24, 2011 - linkAccording to the press release on OCZ's website the Vertex 3 will be available in 120GB and 240GB capacities. The Vertex 3 Pro wil be available in 100GB, 200GB, & 400GB capacities.
Hopefully they will eventually release 60GB version. I would love to have two in RAID 0.
Per Hansson - Thursday, February 24, 2011 - linkHi, has the much talked about hibernation problem with the Sandforce drives been solved in the 2xxx series?
Loosing Hibernation is pretty much a deal killer for me in a laptop :(
douglaswilliams - Thursday, February 24, 2011 - linkWill these faster drives speed up virus scans?
Currently, when a virus scan is running, my laptop performance is crippled.
