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, the WD SN500 250GB drive had an overall score of 2,885 points with sequential read speeds of 1548 MB/s and 1220 MB/s write.
Benchmark Results: Here we speeds ranging from 701 MB/s in the Program workload to 1632 MB/s in the ISO workload, which is very respectable for a mainstream NVMe SSD aimed at budget-conscious buyers.
Benchmark Results: For this benchmark chart you would ideally want to see a straight line as you don’t want any compression performance loss as the test goes from 0% compressible to 100% compressible data during the benchmark test period. The WD SN500 250GB drive has some dips on both sides as you can see.
AJA System Test shows disk performance for those wanting to evaluate your PCIe bandwidth to determine if your system configuration can support various data rates to PCIe-based I/O devices. With larger image formats, PCIe performance is becoming more critical and AJA System Test gives you visibility into your systems performance throughout the entire image delivery pipeline
Benchmark Results: Here we are getting 1,535 MB/s read and 1,243 MB/s write speeds with a 4K Ultra HD resolution with a ProRes 4444 codec.
