The SSD Benchmark Test System & TRIM Support

Before we look at the numbers, let’s take a brief look at the test system that was used. All testing was done on a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (version 1809 build 17763) and benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running. This means windows defender, windows update, disk fragmentation and everything else that would interfere with testing was disabled.

Maximus XI Mainboard

The Intel Z390 platform that we used to test the storage drives was based around the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI Extreme motherboard with BIOS 0905. The Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 16GB 3200MHz memory kit was run with CL15 memory timings and WD Black 1TB NVMe SSD was used as the primary drive.

CrystalDiskInfo 8.1.0 Readout:

The readout on CrystalDiskInfo 8.1.0 shows that the ADATA SX6000 PRO drive series supports S.M.A.R.T. and the NVM Express 1.3 standard. The drive we received had firmware version V9001b31 installed and that is the version that we used for general testing and benchmarking.

The overall capacity shows up as 476GB on the XPG SX6000 PRO 512GB drive in Windows 10 version 1709. Please remember that 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. A certain portion of capacity may be used for system file and maintenance use, thus the actual available capacity may differ from the labeled total capacity.

Does The XPG SX6000 PRO M.2 PCIe NVMe Series Support Trim? 

Most SSDs today support the TRIM command, but we still run a quick test to ensure that the command is being properly passed through to the SSD and being done. A great free utility called TRIMCheck can be run to ensure that TRIM is functioning properly.

According to TRIMCheck v0.7, the ADATA XPG SX6000 PRO 512GB drive that we are testing today does properly execute the TRIM command correctly as the random data that was written to the drive was properly cleaned.

Let’s have a look at the performance!
