WD Blue SN550 1TB NVMe SDD Review


AS SSD Benchmark

AS-SSD (2.0.6821.41776) 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 WD Blue SN550 1TB drive had an overall score of 3,330 points with sequential read speeds of 2,221 MB/s read and 1,844 MB/s write. The 4K random results were at 32.95 MB/s read and 119.10 MB/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. The compression performance was good on the read operations and there were a few dips spotting on the write operation side.
