File Copying Speed
We use AS SSD version 1.7.4739.38088 to benchmark the speed of copying different types of files within a single partition the size of the whole SSD. The SSDs are tested in their steady state again.
Copying files requires that the SSD can effectively do both reading and writing simultaneously. The Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller performs reading and writing in parallel, therefore OCZ's SSDs deliver high performance in this test. Like their predecessors, the Vector 150 and Vertex 460 are strong at mixed loads.
