A few weeks back OCZ announced its new lower cost Core series SSD drives. The Core series drives were significantly cheaper than other offerings on the market with a 128GB SSD going for $479. Laptop Magazine has got hands on the drives and offered up some fast benchmarks in front of a full review.

Laptop found that the read rate for the drive was 112.4Mbps and the drive had a seek time of 1ms. HD Tach gave the drive an average read time of 89.5Mbps. Boot time using the Core SSD was 36.3 seconds, less than a second slower than the much more expensive Samsung SSD. To copy a 5GB file using the 64GB OCZ core series SSD took 3 minutes and 59 seconds.

Laptop says that buying an SSD for improved boot times is not that great an idea with the times it recorded being so close across all types of drives. Still, Laptop plans to run more tests and publish a full review soon. Until then hop over and get more details on the tests ran on the Core Series SSD.
