Crystal Disk Benchmark is visually straightforward, and is used for measuring the speeds at which your storage device reads and writes in both compressible (oFill/1Fill) and random, mostly incompressible, data. Random data is more consistent with everyday use of a computer, such as transferring videos, pictures and music. We run the benchmark twice, using oFill data first, and then proceeding to test with random data. Since results typically return with nearly identical scores, we only include the results for random data samples.
Crystal DiskMark provided great results with our high transfer speed of 5.3GB/s, a definite accomplishment for any three SSD scenario.
AS SSD Benchmark uses incompressible data in their testing of SSDs, essentially providing results that would be consistent with using the heaviest workload, thus lower speeds are expected. Transfer speeds (MB/s) are seen in the left picture below and IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second) are on the right.
Considering that we are now testing with 100% incompressible data, these results are just as impressive. Any storage setup that brings in over 500K IOPS is definitely capable of some great workloads.
Better yet, it isn’t often that we are seeing realistic load transfer speeds of 2.6GB/s where this ISO file was transferred in less than a second.
Anvil Storage Utilities is essentially an all-in-one tool for all of your SSD benchmarking needs. Anvil can be used for basic consumer testing, as well as endurance testing and threaded I/O read, write and mixed tests. It displays data regarding the SSD, and even about your system.
Once again, we are seeing results that are a bit low but thought we might see what we can pull off for read and write IOPS.
Just under 700K IOPS read with 189K IOPS write is really starting to impress.
