OCZ Vector 180 480GB SSD Review


ATTO & AS-SSD Benchmarks

ATTO v2.47

ATTO is one of the oldest drive benchmarks still being used today and is still very relevant in the SSD world. ATTO measures transfers across a specific volume length. It measures raw transfer rates for both reads and writes and places the data into graphs that can be very easily interpreted. The test was run with the default runs of 0.5KB through 8192KB transfer sizes with the total length being 256MB.

ATTO – Intel Z97 Platform:

Benchmark Results: We’re not sure what’s happening with some of the anomalous performance numbers in the middle file sizes but it was consistent every time we ran it. Outside of these, the performance as top notch and performance that’s very close to OCZ specifications and pretty close to that of the Vector 150.


AS-SSD (1.7.4739.38088) Benchmark – Intel Z97 Platform:

We have been running the AS-SSD Benchmark app for over some time now and found that it gives a broad result set. The programmer has worked very hard on this software and continues to make updates often so if you use it, show him some love and send him a donation. There are now three tests that are found within the tool and we’ll show the results from two of them.

Benchmark Results: As we’ve seen with the Indilinx controllers before, performance doesn’t take too much of a hit on this benchmark and in this case, the Vector 180 posts an overall score just slightly better than that of the Vector 150.

Benchmark Results: Performance isn’t impacted by the compressibility of the data as the graph above shows.
