Patriot Zephyr 128GB JMicron Solid-State Drive Review

The Test System

TEST SYSTEM

All tests were performed on a fresh and up to date install of Windows
7 x64 with no other applications running using AHCI mode set through
the BIOS. The Asus P6T Deluxe Motherboard uses an ICH10R south bridge
chipset which supports TRIM. In between every test, the drive was wiped
completely (written to in all 0′s or FF) and left for at least 20
minutes to ensure the TRIM function had time to do its job. As such, all
results should be indicative of optimal performance. All components
were set to their default speeds. The components used are listed below:

Intel LGA 1366 Test Platform

Component

Brand/Model

Live Pricing

Processor

Core i7 920

Video Card

ATI Radeon HD 5970

Hard Drive

OCZ Vertex 30GB

Power Supply

Corsair HX1000

Operating System

Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit

As you can see from the readout on CrystalDiskInfo, S.M.A.R.T. is
enabled, as is NCQ & TRIM. This is a great tool to see what version
of firmware the drive is running as well in the event there are updates
available.
