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: AS SSD showed the Corsair Force MP500 M.2 480GB drive had an overall score of 2,817 points with sequential read speeds of 2,349 MB/s and 1,300 MB/s write.
Benchmark Results: The copy benchmark test results are pretty impressive with speeds ranging from 613 MB/s to 1,342 MB/s.
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 Corsair Force MP500 M.2 480GB drive had a number of performance dips on write operations and you can see that performance does does increase as the compression percentage increases. This is similar to other drives using the Phison controller with Toshiba 15nm MLC NAND Flash, so nothing out of the ordinary here!
