For our next set of tests, we used SiSoft SANDRA, the the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. Here, we used the Physical Disk test suite and provided the results from our comparison SSDs. The benchmarks were run without formatting and read and write performance metrics are detailed below. We have also included SANDRA's detailed graph so you are able to see how the drive performs over time along with the average rated result.
The Patriot Inferno performed just like the OCZ Vertex and Corsair Force series solid state drives in the SiSoft SANDRA Read test. The Inferno, however, significantly outpaced the Zephyr.
The same holds true in SiSoft SANDRA's write benchmark, where the Patriot Inferno performs just like the other SandForce based OCZ and Corsair drives.
