OCZ Vertex 4 SATA 3 SSD Review – Indilinx Infused and Game Changing Performance Results

V4 256GB SSD

The numbers for the 256GB aren’t as high as the 512G but look at that Total Score of 1000 one again.  Great high sequentials, equal and high IOPS as well as a quick disk access time are definite positives of this test.

Last but not least, we thought we would take a look at the AS SSD Copy Benches for both.  The 512GB result on the left is one of the fastest we have seen yet and the 256GB result is very good as well.

ANVIL STORAGE UTILITIES PROFESSIONAL

Over the last little while, we have been assisting with beta testing new benchmark software called Anvil Storage Utilities which is an absolutely amazing SSD benchmarking utility.  Not only does it have a preset SSD benchmark, but also, it has included such things as endurance testing and threaded I/O read, write and mixed tests, all of which are very simple to understand and utilize in our benchmark testing.

The Anvil results of both capacity SSDs show pretty good disk access speeds, excellent and fairly equal read and write IOPS as well as typical transfer speeds.

Nice numbers but I’ll be waiting until after the first firmware rev comes out before diving in. The 512Gb pricing is very attractive and makes the V3 480 price look pretty ridiculous. I’ll be curious how these bad boys handle RAID 0.

Nice benchmarks… bit of tweaking on those benches as well. Did I see a 150+ 4k random write?

“OCZ Technology is standing by the Vertex 4 with a five year warranty”
“…the fact that the Vertex 4 has an industry leading four year warranty.

So is it four or five?

It’s five, but either way 5 isn’t industry leading with Intel,Plextor, and OWC beating them to the 5 year warranty by a long time. This was surely a reaction to the upmarket brands offering two more years of coverage than everyone else.

So it’s good, but it’s not industry-leading… that would be 5 years and 1 day of coverage ;).

I like the specs on the 512GB version very much. If we can see above 550MB/s read and write on future releases then I will be truly impressed.
