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. Although the OCZ Agility 4 256GB did not post earth shattering results in any of the results, the controller's ability to handle non-compressible data, and its IOPS advantage definitely put the Agility 4 among the best performing SandForce disks. As you can see in our graphs above, it was actually quite fast in a number of tests -- besting even the flagship OCZ Vertex 4 more than once. Its high IOPS capability of OCZ's controller paid off, and these are the stuff that will make a big difference in real life performance.
