Along with the move to a new platform, we decided to make a change in one of the benchmarks. There’s a relatively new benchmark called Anvil Storage Utilities that is in beta but close to production. It’s a very powerful tool that measures performance through a variety of tests which can be customized.
Benchmark Results: The benchmark results from the most recent build of Anvil SSD Benchmark showed that with 100% compression (incompressible data) that the Kingston KC2500 1TB drive scored 13,206.86 points in the standard test with 100% compression and 12,906.55 points in the applications benchmark that has 46% compression.
When we chart the score of the standard benchmark (100% compression) the Kingston KC2500 ended up being the sixth fastest drive of the nearly two dozen NVMe drives that we have tested on this platform!
