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 Plextor drive had an overall score of 12,095.58 points. The drive topped out at 2,790.19 MB/s read and 1872.03 MB/s write on the sequential performance test with 4MB file sizes. Random 4K QD16 performance hit 179,000 IOPS on read and 240,000 IOPS write.
