OCZ VX500 - The Wrap Up
Performance Summary: The OCZ VX 500 series solid state drives we tested performed relatively well throughout out battery of benchmarks. In the trace-based PCMark tests, the drives put up some of the best numbers we have seen from mainstream SATA SSDs. Read and write bandwidth overall are strong as well, and are essentially bumping into the limits of the SATA interface. We saw some relatively high latency in the read test according to HD Tune, but writes were in-line with competing drives. Performance with 4K transfers was competitive as well.
