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. To give a clearer picture of the drives tested, I’ve chosen to include all tests. Special the copy test is one that I think is relevant on the consumer level as it gives the user a view of one of the operations he’s going to do many times.
Speed and Copy Benchmarks
Compression Benchmark Test
AS SSD is a funny benchmark application to work with, at least at times. We saw the Inateck FD2002 perform better sequential write speeds than the native connection, but the 4K tests and access times have a natural disadvantage due to the USB bus.
