AS SSD Benchmark

AS-SSD (2.0.6485.19676) 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 – Crucial MX500 500GB:

AS SSD – Crucial MX500 1TB:

Benchmark Results: On AS SSD, the Crucial MX500 drives had an overall score of just over 1,200 points with sequential read speeds of nearly 530 MB/s and just over 480 MB/s write. The 4K random results were down at 39 MB/s read and 90 MB/s write. 

AS SSD  Copy – Crucial MX500 500GB:

AS SSD  Copy – Crucial MX500 1TB:

Benchmark Results: The copy benchmark test results were on par with what one expects from a SATA III SSD with speeds ranging from 482.5 MB/s in the Program to 526 MB/s in the Game benchmark. These are impressive results for a budget friendly SATA SSD! 


AS SSD  Compression – Crucial MX500 500GB:

AS SSD  Compression – Crucial MX500 1TB:

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 WD Blue 3D NAND 1TB had virtually no dips on the read side and just one around the 50% mark on the write side.
