OCZ Vertex 3 240GB SSD (Solid State Drive) Review

Maximum Read / Write


Sisoft Sandra’s disk benchmark allows us to run a synthetic test on the various drives which are being reviewed today, letting us see an average read/write rating as well as the peak speed achieved on each model.

Using SiSoft Sandra it is very easy to see the different levels of performance offered by the three drives in a synthetic scenario. The older F240 which uses the original consumer SandForce SSD controller tops out at 260-270MB/s with the C300 6GB/s compatible drive hitting 355MB/s read at its fastest. The Vertex 3 on the other hand makes good use of the SATA 3 connector on our P67 board, exceeding the 500MB/s barrier on reads and coming close to it on writes which are more than twice the speed of the C300.
