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.
Benchmark Results: On AS SSD, the WD Blue 3D NAND 1TB drive had an overall score of 1,1141 points with sequential read speeds of 482.5 MB/s and 498.9 MB/s write. The 4K random results were down at 30.1 MB/s read and 56.6 MB/s write.
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!
Benchmark Results: We are fans of the AS SSD copy benchmark tests, so we charted the WD Blue 3D NAND 1TD drive against 7 other SAT drives to see how it performs. We were actually shocked to see just how well this 3D TLC NAND drive performed against some big name brands.
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.
