Testing (continued):

Passmark Performance Test 8.0:

Passmark Performance Test 8.0 was used to evaluate performance of the two Kingston SSDs and the older generation 60GB OCZ Agility II. Performance Test 8 evaluates the performance of disks in four categories - composite diskmark score, sequential read, sequential write, and random seek performance. In all categories a higher score is better. Note: This benchmark uses incompressible data.

Disk Mark

Sequential Read (MB/s)

Sequential Write (MB/s)

Random Seek (MB/s)

PassMark 8 demonstrates the Kingston SSDNow V300 performs roughly 50% faster than the competing OCZ drive. Overall The PassMark 8 results show the V300 reaches the advertised 450MB/s sequential read speed. The sequential write speeds fall substantially short of the 450MB/s target however, coming in at 114MB/s. The Kingston HyperX SSD performs similarly in read speeds and marginally faster in sequential write speeds, but both drives fall at least 66% short of the 450MB/s write specification. A similar trend was observed during the Crystal Disk Mark test due to the incompressible nature of the test data. This is expected and should not be troubling to consumers.
