    So I recently put a OCZ Vertex 2 SSD drive in my 2006 Mac Pro 1,1 2.66ghz.

    The computer worked perfectly, and it's very fast and snappy.

    I just have one minor concern that maybe I am not understanding very well concerning xbench.

    I checked out a few different xbench scores for this same drive, and it seems to be that mine is lower than them by a good margin. Am I reading something incorrectly? Or should this drive be faster numbers wise?


    I got a total score of around 227, 2.66ghz quad core with 5 gigs of ram and an SSD drive, and ATI x1900xt video card.


    Here is the picture as well, does anyone see anything off performance wise with the drive or anything else?

    Your computers disk bench is indeed very low. :confused:

    My OCZ vertex 2 generated an xbench disk bench of 360 in my 2010 MP Quad.

    I haven't a clue what's going on with your #'s.

    Does it have anything to do with my Mac Pro being the version 1.1 from 2006? Maybe there is some bottleneck there? Or perhaps should I try and switch the bay the drive is in?

    Funny thing though, the drive really does feel very fast and I do not notice any slowdowns really.

    What bay is the drive connected in?

    Is this OCZ one of the newer 25nm versions? I've read that the 25nm SSDs are a bit slower than the original 34nm release. FWIW, I purchased my Vertex 2 almost a year ago so its very likely a 34nm version.

    I just bought it last week, so I am assuming it is the newer Vertex 2. It's currently installed in the 4th bay of my Mac Pro, should that make a difference?
