Samsung SSD 980 1TB NVMe SSD Review


Anvil Storage Utilities

Anvil Storage Utilities 1.1.0

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.

Anvil SSD Benchmark with 100% Compression (incompressible data):

Benchmark Results: The benchmark results from the most recent build of Anvil SSD Benchmark showed that with 100% compression (incompressible data) the Samsung SSD 980 1TB NVMe SSD scored 14,215.91 points in the standard test with 100% compression.

Anvil SSD Benchmark with 46% Compression (Applications Test):

Benchmark Results: With only 46% compression the score actually went up to 14,152.27 points on the Samsung SSD 980 1TB NVMe SSD.

That score puts the Samsung SSD 980 1TB drive in the upper half of the performance chart against many of the most popular drives on the market today.
