Is it the IOPS that make the real world performance difference?

I find that the throughput (in MB) is nice but mostly marketing hype it seems since most of the highest performing drives don’t necessarily have the highest synthetic numbers?

More curious than anything else.

The short answer: the real world depends on a combination of random IOPS and sequential read/write, but having a high random IOPS measurement is good.

The long answer has been covered in exquisite detail here (as in other reviews): http://www.myce.com/review/ocz-vertex-450-256gb-ssd-review-67226/test-pc-and-testing-procedures-3/
