You may not see this for long (and its definitely not common) but you get a freebee simply for reading! Over the last little while, we have been assisting with beta besting new benchmark software called Anvil Storage Utilities which is an absolutely amazing SSD benchmarking utility. Not only does it have a preset SSD benchmark, but also, it has included such things as endurance testing and threaded I/O read, write and mixed tests, all of which are very simple to understand and utilize in our benchmark testing.
The first two benchmarks will display testing in highly compressible (or 0Fill) data while the last two will be with incompressible data.
The Toshiba ‘LSI SandForce Driven’ SSD displays great performance and the high IOPS result of over 89,000 and Total Score comparison serves to enhance the transfer speed and disk access speed results. If our theory is correct, things should look much better for the Samsung when we test in completely incompressible data:
These results were a bit surprising as, although the Samsung held better transfer performance, the Toshiba prevailed once again in IOPS and also the Total Score.
