Vertex 3 vs Vertex 2?

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
Ok so here's my problem and i would really appreciate your expertise on this...

Last Christmas i built a new system, and my OS disks where 2x Vertex 2 60GB on RAID 0. Unfortunately one of them failed (what a lucky guy i am) disrupting the raid. I was able o return it for a new one, but got unlucky one again since the new one is the 25nm one with 5GB less space and worse performance, so i still cant set up the RAID. I now have a 34nm 60GB Vertex 2 and a 25 55GB 25nm.

I'm thinking of somehow returning them and exchange them with either one 120GB Vertex 3, or once again go for 2x60 RAID 0 but V3. I just want nothing to do with these 25nm V2.

Would you think that one 120GB V3 would perform better than 2x60 V2? If so then i should get one. I shall have TRIM and less of a scare of one disk failing.

A 120GB Vertex 3 will definately out perform a RAID 0 of 60GB Vertex 2s. I'd go with the Vertex 3 without hesitation. But honestly I'd get a 200+ GB Vertex 3 because having such little space is scary in my opinion.

Even 120GB is sooo expensive. I couldnt afford anything greater. I will only be considered lucky if the store lets me replace the 2 60s for the 120 V3. I hope this gets settled.

-BTW is there nothing less than 120 for V3s?
-And are all new generation SSDs gonna be 25nm?

yep vertex 3 is 25nm. as far as i know all future gen should be 25nm.

How do you figure?

The Read and Write speeds are similar for single V2 vs V3, IOPS are similar as well, but V2 in RAID 0 is practically twice the speed.

sequantial read/write? vertex has 550mbp vs 275mbps. IOPS wise vertex 3 is a bit better.

yea, sry I saw the wrong specs...

IOPS wise though, Vertex 2 RAID 0 is about 70K+ or something, which is better than the V3 no?

I do agree that V3 is the best choice now though

I went from a single Vertex 2E 120GB to a single Vertex 3 120GB and the performance difference on SATA-6Gbps is indeed noticeable but not EXTREMELY. At the end of the day, both SSDs perform insanely well (they are SSDs after all!) and my eye doesn't see a "double" difference in performance, but some difference is indeed there. RAID0 should be a great boost regardless, though.

200GB for a boot drive? Huge waste of money right there, IMO
