OCZ Vertex 4 SSD review
Application and game loading performance
These tests are very simple tests, but very important to some users of SSD drives.
We simply started an application or game, and measured the time taken for the application or game to fully load and start.
Application loading times
Adobe Fireworks CS3
These types of tests are becoming pretty pointless, as there is so little difference in tangible performance between the modern SSDs, but for the record, the OCZ Vertex 4 is the fastest.
Corel PaintShop Pro 12
Again, I doubt anyone could tell difference from the fastest to the slowest modern SATA 6Gbps SSD, as they are all very close, but for posterity the OCZ Vertex 4 is the fastest.
Games loading times
FAR CRY 2
I was beginning to think that showing game loading results were becoming a pointless exercise, as the results were always so very close between the modern SATA 6Gbps SSDs. However, for the first time in a long time, we have an SSD that is tangibly faster at loading a game, and that SSD is the OCZ Vertex 4.
This time there isn’t a huge difference between the SATA 6Gbps SSDs, but the OCZ Vertex 4 is the fastest.
Now let’s round off this article with the MyCE Reality Suite tests on the next page…..
