To read this review go to: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/OCZ/Agility_3_240_GB/
I love how you don't use synthetic benchmarks which are kind of pointless. Maybe 1 more game level load test would be nice, something really big (what has huge load times).
Gonna buy myself a C300 soon since it's so cheap and blazing read/load speeds.
P.S. excellent review! Keep those SSD review coming! (OCZ Solid 3, Intel 310, Wildfire left haha!)
any games you have in mind ?
I know that Empire Total War can take a time to load on my system, but that may be related to my cpu as well, maybe (pc in specs).
Not on my mind, no
But something that is popular, like one of the FPS. I almost suggested a MMO-RPG but that can produce random results as at different times it has to load different models (more or less npcs or players nearby).
yep, also it's a pain with rebenching when they release a new patch
I'll keep my Agility 2, because it is not worth to upgrade. Thanks for the review.
for long load testing
Try Shogun II, maxed settings with DX11 enabled
DX11 shaders take a long time to load so hopefully an SSD would make for shorter battle load times, which are in the multiple minute range sometimes as high as 5mins on a standard HDD.
i have only intel igp in the test system and no plan to change
aw crap never mind then w1zz, i just know that the DX11 effects take forever to load figured it would be a good test, but no gpu well hmm not much i offer other then that its the only game i know of with extreme load times.
I read another review, where the drive doesn't actually fit in a laptop, as the drive is larger than specs show. Was this the case with your sample as well?
