Aligning disk partitions to prevent SSD wear | Page 2 | MacRumors Forums
Nate seems to have the definitive answers:

You don't need to manually align your partitions, Apple's Disk Utility does all that you really need it to do.

Disk utility automatically aligns partitions, to a degree. It doesn't do anything in the way of NAND page size or NAND erase size. It's not an issue. What does matter is File Allocation Unit Size. You can confirm that it does indeed align the partitions. All you need is a utility called gdisk (GPT fdisk).

Open a shell window and execute gdisk:
Code:
sudo gdisk /dev/diskX

X is the number disk you want to check. This information is available using Disk Utility or the command-line utility called diskutil (diskutil list).

You should get something like at the bottom Get the number under start for the largest partition. Multiply this by the Logical Sector size, which should be 512 bytes for most SSDs. Don't worry if yours isn't though. Now you have the partition offset in bytes.

Now you have to divide the partition offset by the file allocation size. With all modern SSDs, the File Allocation Unit Size is 4096 bytes. The number that gdisk reports is a number of sectors, not bytes. Multiply the number of sectors by the Logical sector size and then divide the result by 4096. If its an integer, then the disk is aligned.

Disk Utility partitions drives (I don't know about HDDs, I only use SSDs) like the output below.
