OCZ IBIS HSDL Solid State Drive Preview

PCMark Vantage HDD

We really like PCMark Vantage's HDD Performance for its real-world application measurement approach to testing.  From simple Windows start-up performance to data streaming from a disk drive in a game engine and video editing with Windows Movie Maker, we feel more confident that these tests reasonably illustrate the performance profile of SSDs in an end-user/consumer PC usage model.

This series of Vantage tests will stress read performance in simple real-world usage models, with a broad mix of sequential and random read transactions of both small and large file sizes.

Here, the OCZ IBIS puts up strong performance but perhaps not as Earth-shattering as the ioXtreme.  The Vista Startup test shows IBIS to be over 60% faster than one of the fastest single SSDs on the market.  The good news here, unlike the ioXtreme PCI Express SSD, the IBIS drive can also be used as a bootable volume.
