AS SSD Benchmark

AS-SSD (2.0.7316.64247) 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.


Benchmark Results: On AS SSD Benchmark, the Samsung SSD 980 Pro 1TB topped out at 5.41 GB/s read and 3.96 GB/s write whereas the 50GB model reached 5.54 GB/s read and 4.04 GB/s write.

AS SSD Compression:

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. Here we see the performance is relatively flat with two to four performance dips on the write test on both capacity drives.
