The AS SSD software determines the performance of Solid State Drives (SSD). The tool contains five synthetic and three practice tests. The synthetic tests determine the sequential and random read and write performance of the SSD. These tests are performed without using the operating system caches. In Sequential tests the program measures the time it takes to read and write a 1GB file respectively.
Straight out of the box, the Extreme II comes up trumps with a strong set of results with the Marvell controller with speeds topping out at well over 120MB/s for the 4K write tests.
