Average Bench: 85.7% (114th of 853)

Based on 567 user benchmarks.  Models: Radeon R7, Radeon R7, Radeon R 7

The AMD Radeon R7 SSD is manufactured by OCZ (Toshiba). The release of the R7 is in line with OCZ's approximate six-monthly release cycle. Apart from newer NAND memory, the R7 has the same components as the OCZ Vector 150. Comparing the AMD R7 and Vector 150 shows that peak performance is broadly unchanged. We don't have any user samples for the new R7 yet but based on components, it's reasonable to assume that real-world effective speeds will also be comparable to the Vector 150. Although the 240GB R7 SSD is a strong performer, disappointingly, it brings nothing new to the table in terms of hardware. Unless OCZ/Toshiba can pull something out of the bag they will continue to loose market share to Samsung who are still managing to innovate with each of their releases; most recently the 850 pro series.  [Aug '14 SSDrivePro]
