In this video I stress test the OCZ Vertex 3 120GB SSD and compare it to the multitasking speed of a Western Digital Caviar Black 1000GB HDD with impressive results ( for the SSD at least).
( A few people have commented about how there laptop/HDD can boot up faster, it probably can since this is a stress test not a boot-up test. If you think you have a faster HDD that could boot the entire Autodesk and Adobe Suite in less time post it as a video response. =P )
The programs set to open on both tests are design programs from AutoDesk and Adobe. All very demanding programs. Enjoy the Video :).
