Benchmarks: Real-World Applications

The OCZ Vertex 450 256GB took just 95 seconds to install Red Orchestra 2, which was the fastest overall and is the same time it took the original Vector drives.

Most high-end solid-state drives tested took just 43 seconds to complete a virus scan of the System32 folder, OCZ Vertex 450 256GB included. Either the CPU or the SATA 6Gb/s interface is creating a bottleneck here and is stopping us from breaking the 43 second mark.
