Intel 750 U.2/AIC SSD RAID0 (X3) Report – 5GB/S & 750K IOPS

CRYSTAL DISK BENCHMARK VER. 3.0.3 x64

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 VER. 1.7

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 PROFESSIONAL

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.

Just a great article! Really good job on the test. I thought the DMI 3 speed of 3.93 GB/s would affect performance, and yet it didn’t. How come?

because they used 1 pcie ssd which is connected to the cpu directly
the other 2 are connected through dmi

Guys, I believe: 1) [b]ATTO READ results are victim of 32bit overflow [/b]. 1024kB block show result of 4053109kB/s (=4GB/s), 2048kB block size only shows 700729kB/s caused by the 32bit overflow. This is AFTER it crossed 4GB/s threshold (2^32 = 4194304kB/s) so the TOTAL write speed in fact was 4GB/s + 0.7GB/s = 4.7GB/s. As I say, ATTO can NOT count with bigger than 32bit numbers internally, so that’s the reason why it only displays 0.7GB/s instead of what it should be 4.7GB/s. The same thing applies to 4096kB and 8192kB block size results, they SHOULD be 4.96GB/s and 4.99GB/s.… Read more »

We’re starting to hit the really intoxicating performance levels here. When you consider that you can get 2 800Gb units for about $800 and RAID0 them that’s a damn bargain.

It’s interesting how Intel can provide 3 new 750s for a raid 0 review, but can’t provide 1 mainstream 535 2.5 ssd for review to any site and it’s been out for a while now.
