Crystal Disk Mark 3.0 is in the spotlight. Just a bit of background information; higher capacity drives tend to perform a little better in these tests. The ability of a controller and flash memory to deliver high IOPS will provide huge benefits to the score as well. The OCZ Trion 100 480GB is rated at 90,000 IOPS for read and 54,000 IOPS for write, which is pretty good on the read end of things, but a bit weak for write. Looking at the results, this was certainly reflected. In the read tests, the OCZ Trion 100 480GB outperformed the OCZ ARC 100 240GB in literally every category; trailing only the Patriot Ignite 480GB by a small margin. For the most part, it was better than both the Crucial BX100 500GB (MLC) and SanDisk Ultra II 240GB (TLC). In the write tests, the Trion 100 did fine in sequential write and 4K, but it really fell behind the competition in 512K and 4K QD32 by a considerable margin. I will let you make your own comparisons in our massive list of SSDs in the graphs above.
