AS-SSD Synthetic Benchmark
We continue on with our battery of benchmarks with the AS-SSD suite.
AS-SSD (1.6.4013.39530) Benchmark – Intel P67 Platform
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 of them.
Benchmark Results: The Intel 320 Series scores well, especially in the sequential reads. The 4k writes are still outpaced by the SandForce drives by a good margin but the 4k reads are right there. Again, the 4k random write scores may be under-reported by this benchmark due to it’s short run so evaluate the score with this in mind.
Benchmark Results: The graph shows that the impact of data compressibility is minimal
at best which is different from SandForce based drives which see a ramp
up in performance as you move along the X-axis..
Let’s do some real world tests!
