Samsung SSD 970 PRO NVMe 512GB SSD Review


AS SSD Benchmark

AS-SSD (2.0.6485.19676) 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 – Samsung SSD 970 PRO 512GB:

Benchmark Results: On AS SSD, the Samsung SSD 970 512GB drive had an overall score of 4794 points with sequential read speeds of 3007 MB/s and 2141 MB/s write. The 4K random results were at 57.16 MB/s read and 159.51 MB/s write.

AS SSD Copy – Samsung SSD 970 PRO 512GB:

Benchmark Results: The copy benchmark test results were ranging from 698 MB/s in the Program to 2021 MB/s in the ISO benchmark.

AS SSD Compression – HP SSD EX920 M.2 1TB:

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 970 PRO 512GB drive showed a nice flat line for read performance and on the write side there were a few small performance performance dips.
