OCZ IBIS HSDL Solid State Drive Preview

SiSoft SANDRA Testing


Next we fired up SiSoftware's SANDRA 2010, 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.

As far as SANDRA is concerned, the new OCZ IBIS is the fastest SSD here by a long shot in terms of write performance and just a bit slower with reads, versus the ioXtreme SSD card.  We'll also note that the IBIS drive's performance across its entire 240GB volume was relatively flat, with no apparent saw-toothed peak/valley pattern that we occasionally see from SSD RAID configurations.  In short, according to SANDRA the IBIS is a rather balanced high-bandwidth SSD solution.
