Windows 7: Show us your SSD performance

That was my first benchmark above posting.

First ATTO and second bench here for WHS.

I have no clue what this is showing for all the lines. Read/write I get but why so many lines of info?

Hoppalong, I think it takes a little while to get broken in. At least mine did.

Per AS SSD.

Ran the TRIM function thru Intel Toolbox. I ran AS SSD again no change. 18+ 4k read is it. Unless there is something else I'm missing.

I really wasn't worried about it. I was running them for posterity!

That is the end of my benchmarking unless things get slow and I want to check it for a reason.

Each line is for a different block size the scale on the left is in kb's from 512 bytes through to 8Mb and the larger blocks can be read/written a lot faster than the smaller blocks

I hope this helps

This looks more familiar. I always focus on the 4K and 8K numbers because those are the bloksizes the system uses. And those look very good as e.g. compared to one of my Vertex2 (see below).

On Intels, the write speed is typically slower than on the OCZs. I have noticed that a few times. But since the system does a lot more reads than writes, that is no area of concern.

I use an Extensa 5635z with a vertex 2. With a HDD this was just another cheap lappy but with the Vertex it now feels very fast and responsive, just the Graphic chip lets it down, but that is no great problem for me as I didn't buy this to play games.

One thing I noticed with all the SSD's.
One brand or model is really good at one thing but is often not so good somewhere else.
So finding the balance is the trick it appears.

Vertex 3 Max Iops- Fastest at most things but 18.9 on the 4k read. The trade off for extreme speed in some functions.
This was noted at Anandtech also.

I have a vertex2 and an Intel X25 I have comparasons of them both. The Intel has faster read speeds but the Vertex has faster write speeds. This is the same machine (AMD) exact same OS after secure erase.

How did you do the secure erase with the Intel toolbox?

1) When Toolbox is opened it states it cannot erase with partion. I can remove the partition but then the SSD is no longer bootable.
That is from the instructions pdf. Page 4-3 I think.

2) Even without the partition the SSD cannot be erased from within the SSD with toolbox.
This is per the pdf instructions referred to in Snip in yellow circle.

So you have me a bit confused on how you did this.

Per second Snip you can't run secure erase if SSD is Primary disk and bootable.

Perhaps I do it the hard way. BUt, I create a partioion on another HD. Then clone my SSD to that partition, boot into the new partition, delete the partition on the SSD and use the toolbox to secure erase. Sometimes it will tell you the drive is locked and to hotplug it. If that happens, turn off the computer, disconnect the power plug from the SSD. Start the computer, boot into the new partition, open the toolbox. It will not find the SSD. With the toolbox open, plug the SSD back in, push the refresh button. Toolbox will then see the SSD and it should not be locked.

An alternative method is download Parted Magic, unplug the ssd, boot into the Parted magic DVD, once completely loaded replug the SSD go to HD Erase on the dvd , select the last option for secure erase, it will take less than 30 sec. and it is done. Parted magic is easier for me. If you want I will find the tutorial on the OCZ forum site for you. It really sounds more complicated than it is. Once you do it a couple times, there's nothing to it.

EDIT: Here is the tutorial from the OCZ site. Intel works the same.
