    OCZ Agility 2 120GB

    So I grabbed the Agility 2 120gb on Newegg this morning for $240... hoping this was a good idea

    Will post benches when it comes in, hopefully by Thursday.


    Anybody have some insight into how they perform?

    I don't think the Agility 2 comes in 120gb... Did you get the 100gb Agility 2, or the 120gb Agility Gen1?

    Yea, my first step into the world of SSD...

    Doing a 4x500GB RAID 5 storage of these ($39 per)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136358

    and the 120GB SSD drive ($240)

    I am hoping someone who bought one throws it up for sale soon. Right as I tried to complete the order, it went sold out.

    Actually, they seem to have 50, 60, 100, 120, 200, and 240GB sizes for the Vertex 2s and Agility 2s. They're all over Newegg. I'm so very tempted to grab a 120GB Vertex 2 when its stocked at the Egg.

    What the hell...? The Point of the Vertex 2 and Agility 2 series is the 10gb's of NAND flash cache. That is why they are labeled as 50 and 100gb's. On the 50gb version, 50gb is the memory flash for storage and 10gb is NAND flash cache. On the 100gb, 100gb is storage and 20gb's of NAND cache. I wonder why they (ocz) is doing it this way... It seems like too little of a change to really put them on the market. And maybe they are out of stock because they don't exist and it's a typo... lol

    The IOPS and 4k random r/w are WAY faster than the previous gen guys... These drives are beasts comapred to the first gen.

    I also cant believe that someone would go out and blow this much money and not know how they perform. Unbelieveable. Especially being a member here for 5+ years you didnt ask first or look at any reviews?!?!! Oye.

    I googled, "Agility 2 reviews" and came up with these: http://www.google.com/search?sourcei...ility+2+review

    I was under the assumption that these were different than the 50GB/100GB version, since both of those are listed on Newegg as well. On the OCZ website the 120GB is in the "extended sizes" category, all the reviews are the 50/100GB versions.

    I'm guessing they're the same regardless of the capacity? The one you linked with the review is a 128GB, I've seen that review, but I can't even find a 128GB version of the agility 2

    The difference between Agility 2 100GB and 120GB is only firmware. They have the same physical amount of flash on them, but the 120GB version has lower over provisioning which hurts performance slightly. We are talking 3-5% with a full drive from the benchmarks I've seen.

    Something is right what that. Those arent close to its advert. numbers.

    ACHI enabled?

    ... Wha?!?! Those are seriously messed up numbers. Gen 1 Ocz drives perform better than that!

    What southbridge are you on? I would assume with your benching you must be on an ICH10R. Those are pretty low numbers even for Amd southbridges... Newest firmware installed?

    my numbers attached, i dont believe the eVGA 750i FTW has AHCI support though, so I'm guessing when I upgrade the board I might see a lift.

    Yeah, X58 board
    Looks like mine is a dud will test it on another board tomorrow

    Are you using the Microsoft or the Intel drivers? I remember somebody getting a big boost with a SandForce drive when installing the Intel drivers.

    You mean Intel chipset drivers?

    one thing I'll say though, I"m guessing this might be more related to the AHCI issue (at work atm, no screenshots)

    My AS SSD results were much lower than yours, even though the bench I posted above was much higher. I haven't tweaked anything yet, both tests were on fresh OS install and all factory settings.
