IOMeter is another open source synthetic benchmarking tool which is able to simulate the various loads placed on hard drive and solid state drive technology.
We test with both random read and write 4k tests, as shown above. There are many ways to measure the IOPS performance of a Solid State Drive, so our results will often vary between the manufacturer’s quoted ratings.
Our findings are close to the OCZ quoted speeds, although our test parameters are slightly different. OCZ don’t often ‘fudge’ their quoted ratings and we do credit them for that. Our results are fantastic and some of the best we have achieved to date.
We recorded close to 95,000 IOPS in the 4kb random read test and around 90,000 IOPS in the random write test. These are better than any other standard 2.5 inch SSD we have tested to date.OCZ Vector 256GB SSD Review,
