There has obviously been a fair amount of buzz going on in the market about SSD (Solid State Disks) as of late, as pricing continues its downward trend. In addition, performance has continued to improve with SSDs as the technology matures. Recently, announcements from major OEMs like Samsung have promised fairly impressive offerings with read/write performance that would rival most standard spinning disks and of course sub 1ms access times that literally no standard rotational media could come close to.
In preparation for an SSD round-up here at HotHardware, we started getting in eval samples from various vendors and one of them perhaps has made a bit more of a splash than others recently, with its $200 price tag, after rebates (64GB model, 128GB is $399 - $449) and specified 120 - 140MB/sec read and 80 - 93MB/sec write performance. So, we decided to give you all a quick-take look at it before we dig into the pile of SSDs we have here in the lab. The OCZ Core Series SATA II 64GB Solid State Drive is here on the test bench and we pitted it against some stiff competition as you'll see.
