As promised, here are the screenshots I mentioned for the Agility 2 (I left it as MB/s instead of IOPS.. which, btw, I'm getting 12K IOPS vs the spec'd 10K). Left one is with write cache on, middle is with write cache on but buffer flushing off, and the right one is with write cache off. I realized I made a mistake when I gave the reason for turning write cache off. What I should have said was that since the Sandforce controllers don't have a cache buffer having this option on or off won't matter (with it on Windows will send the command regardless, but it won't do anything), and you can see that in the scores. However, the interesting part is what happens when you turn off buffer flushing. With that turned off (which you can only do when write cache is turned on) write scores go down. Every single time I run the test the same thing happens: write scores are lower. Lastly, OCZ has seriously pissed me off with these new Sandforce drives. Not because the drives are bad, far far from it, but I'm pissed because they've released an Extended version of the exact same drive mere days or weeks after releasing the regular drives. These Extended drives have the exact same hardware, literally identical drives, but their firmware has opened up an extra 20GB of space (100/120GB drive has 128GB of space, 28GB of that is spare on the regular drives, 8GB on the Extended). That isn't why I'm pissed exactly (only partially). What has me fuming is that THEY ARE CHEAPER! Not just cheaper, but they have a higher $$ rebate than the standard drive making them even more cheaper! Talk about a double whammy, guys. Thank-you very much, OCZ. I felt great about getting one of these, but now, hell, what a way to make a guy feel like a schmuck.
