AS SSD Benchmark

AS-SSD (2.0.7316.64247) Benchmark:

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 Benchmark, the Crucial P5 1TB scored 4,236 points and topped out at 3.0 GB/s read and 2.8 GB/s write.

AS SSD Compression:

Benchmark Results: For this benchmark chart you would ideally want to see a straight line as you dont want any compression performance loss as the test goes from 0% compressible to 100% compressible data during the benchmark test period. The Crucial P5 1TB drive gave us fairly flat performance on the the read transfers, but the write transfers gave a rather unique result as you can see from the image above. The P5 performed well at 0% and 100% compression on the write test, but between those values was all over the place.
