OCZ Vertex Limited Edition, SandForce Powered SSD

Next we fired up SiSoftware's SANDRA 2009, the S ystem AN alyzer, D iagnostic and R eporting A ssistant. Here, we used the Physical Disk test suite and provided the results from our comparison SSDs. The benchmarks were run without formatting and both read and write performance metrics are detailed below. We also included SANDRA's graph so you are able to see how the drive performs over time and the length of the entire disk volume, along with the average rated result.

As far as SANDRA is concerned, the new OCZ Vertex LE is the fastest drive of our bunch in terms of write performance and about on par with Micron's blazingly fast C300 SSD for read throughput. It's interesting to see the very saw-toothed pattern the write graph looks like for the Vertex LE drive, though in general there is more variance in write plots for all drives in our test.
