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. As you can see in our graphs above, the OCZ Vector 180 240GB performed pretty well, as expected. OCZ rates the Vector 180 to be capable of delivering 95,000 IOPS, which is the same as the Vector 150. In the Read category, it turned out to be a statistical tie with its predecessor. This is certainly not a bad thing, considering the Vector 150 was one of the best SATA 6Gb/s drives. The Vector 180 had significant gains in 4K, however; delivering one of the best results we have seen here at APH Networks. In the 4K QD32 test, the gain was not as large over the Vector 150, but it remained one of the best. In the Write category, it turned out to be a bit behind its predecessor in the first two tests, with a slight improvement in the last two. Overall, there was no clear winner in any of the categories, and the performance grade OCZ Vector 180 240GB delivered performance generally in the higher end of the spectrum. I will let you check out our massive comparison graphs above.
