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 WD_Black AN1500 2TB topped out at 5.42 GB/s read and 4.31 GB/s with an overall score of 6,204 points.

AS SSD Compression:

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 AN1500 2TB AIC does pretty well on this test for read operations, but the write side had a few pretty big dips.
