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 Mercury EXTREME Pro results were almost identical the to Vertex 3 120GB drive and very good overall. The Intel 510 Series and Crucial M4 drives are really the only non-SandForce drive to keep pace.
Benchmark Results: As typical for a SandForce drive, the curved graph shows how write performance increases as the level of compressibility increases.
Let’s do some real world tests!
