HD Tune v4.01 - Random Access
The random access read and write test is a very important performance area to look at on solid state drives as some controllers have problems with random writes. In recent years the controllers have improved and the firmware has been better optimized for random read and write performance.
Random Access Read Test Results:
Benchmark Results: When it comes to the random access read performance test the OCZ Vertex 2 Pro 100GB SSD with the SandForce 1500 controller in it does pretty well. For example, this drive scored 8752 IOPS in the 4KB test file size. The Intel X25-M G2 160GB drive had 16021 IOPS in the 4KB read test, so the drive scored okay, but nowhere near what the Intel drive was capable of doing.
Random Access Write Test Results:
Benchmark Results: The write performance test results of the OCZ Vertex 2 Pro 100GB SSD was once again only okay.
4KB Random Write File Test Results Chart:
Benchmark Results: Many of our readers have asked for a chart showing side-by-side comparisons of the drives we have tested in the 4KB random access write test. You can see from this chart that the OCZ Vertex 2 Pro 100GB SSD with the SandForce 1500 controller is much slower than what we could reach on the Intel G2 24nm SSD.
