Intel SSD 545s 512GB SATA SSD Review – 64-Layer TLC NAND

AS SSD Benchmark

AS-SSD (1.9.5986.35387) 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.

AS SSD – Intel SSD 545s 512GB:

Benchmark Results: AS SSD showed the Intel SSD 545s 512GB drive had an overall score of 1,066 points with sequential read speeds of 523 MB/s and 479 MB/s write. 

AS SSD  Copy – Intel SSD 545s  512GB:

Benchmark Results: The copy benchmark test results were on par with what one expects from a SATA III SSD with speeds ranging from ~280 MB/s in the program and game tests to 426 MB/s in the ISO benchmark.

AS SSD  Compression – Intel SSD 545s 512GB:

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 Intel SSD 545s 512GB had a few dips that we don’t like to see mainly in the write test, but did okay for the most part.

    No cap to prevent data loss in case of a power failure. I’ll pass. The Intel 730’s I have have a capacitor to prevent data loss in case of a power failure. Wow, it’s cheap to implement, but of course, they don’t, because it’s not “Extreme” or “Enterprise”

    I don’t get,

    Legit Bottom Line: The ADATA SU900 Ultimate SSD performs well……

    The term is “lose”, not “loose”.

      Thanks for catching the typo! It has been fixed.
