Toshiba / KIOXIA XG5-P 2TB 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):

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

Benchmark Results: The benchmark results from the most recent build of Anvil SSD Benchmark showed that with 100% compression (incompressible data) that the KIOXIA 2TB drive scored 9,203.33 points in the standard test with 100% compression and 9,129.85 points in the applications benchmark that has 46% compression.

When we chart the score of the standard benchmark (100% compression) the KIOXIA XG5-P 2TB ends up being one of the slower NVMe SSDs that we have tested on this AMD X570 platform.
