ADATA XPG SX8000 PCIe NVMe 512GB SSD Review

AS SSD Benchmark

AS-SSD (1.9.5986.35387) Benchmark:

We have been running the AS-SSD Benchmark app for over some time now and found that it gives a broad result set. The programmer has worked very hard on this software and continues to make updates often so if you use it, show him some love and send him a donation. There are now three tests that are found within the tool and we’ll show the results from all three of them.

AS SSD – ADATA SX8000 512GB:

ADATA XPG SX8000 PCIe SSD ASSSD

Benchmark Results: AS SSD showed the ADATA XPG SX8000 512GB drive had an overall score of 2,178 points with sequential read speeds of 1,754 MB/s and 1,105 MB/s write. 

AS SSD  Copy – ADATA SX8000 512GB:

ADATA XPG SX8000 PCIe SSD ASSSD Copy

Benchmark Results: The copy benchmark test results are pretty impressive with speeds ranging from 1,024 MB/s in the game test to 1,217 MB/s in the ISO benchmark.

AS SSD  Compression – ADATA XPG SX8000 512GB:

ADATA XPG SX8000 PCIe SSD ASSSD Compression

Benchmark Results: For this benchmark chart you would ideally want to see a straight line as you don’t want any compression performance loss as the test goes from 0% compressible to 100% compressible data during the benchmark test period. The ADATA XPG SX8000 512GB SSD did okay, but had a handful of dips when we don’t like to see any.

    Would you be able to put the drive through some gaming benchmarks to test the marketing claim that this is a drive for gamers? I’d be curious to see what the actual real-world difference is going from a SATA based SSD to one of these to a high end Samsung 960. From this article we know how this compares to other NVMe SSDs, which is helpful, but we don’t really know what this means in terms of actual usage.

  • Some charts are really hard to read, I mean I’m not colorblind at all but you know what I mean.

    My conclusion is if the extra 32GB offered here over the MyDigitalSSD BPX 480GB is not a big deal, it’s better to go with the latter. Right?

      The ADATA SX8000 runs pretty cool, so for a bad airflow case or laptop it might be the better long term solution. The MyDigitalSSD BPX 480GB drive is certainly one of the best values around right now. Seems like the price is starting to go up on that drive though.

      Any suggestions on the charts? I’m no Excel master, so any tips or advice would be welcomed! I’m always trying to make the charts better.

      • Very interesting, I overlooked this. Thanks!

          I’m not sure what they are running as it looks like it is some JS. They also have a standard image of it – http://www.hardware.fr/getgraphimg.php?id=13&n=1

          Any ideas? We use WordPress, so let me know of a plugin or something if you find one.
