WD Black 512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD Review


AS SSD Benchmark

AS-SSD (1.9.5986.35387) 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 – WD Black PCIe 512GB:

Benchmark Results: AS SSD showed the WD Black PCIe 512GB drive had an overall score of 1,897 points with sequential read speeds of 1,607 MB/s and 783 MB/s write.

AS SSD Copy – WD Black PCIe 512GB:

Benchmark Results: The copy benchmark test results are pretty impressive with speeds ranging from 539 MB/s in the game test to 1,214 MB/s in the ISO benchmark.

AS SSD Compression – WD Black PCIe 512GB:

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 WD Black PCIe 512GB drive was pretty flat in both tests once it got going.
