Up next is Crystal Disk Mark 3.0. While it was becoming less surprising that the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 240GB pulls out very impressive numbers compared to previous generation solid state drives (We're talking 1.5 to 2 times the performance) after reading the ATTO charts on the previous page, what is surprising is the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS did not seem all that divine in the 4K read and write tests. On the other hand, if we take a glance at our baseline reference -- the Western Digital Caviar Blue 7200rpm hard disk -- and considering how SF-1222 based SSDs were the performance benchmark less than a year ago, what we are witnessing here are still breakneck speeds.
