Crystal Disk Benchmark is used to measure read and write performance through sampling of random data which is, for the most part, incompressible. Performance is virtually identical, regardless of data sample so we have included only that using random data samples.
The results are strikingly similar to that of the Trion 100 as we can see from our previous review here. Again, furthering our belief about the TC58 controller. Sequential speeds reach 564MB/s read and 540MB/s write while 4K performance is typical of that of a value oriented product.
The toughest benchmark available for solid state drives is AS SSD as it relies solely on incompressible data samples when testing performance. For the most part, AS SSD tests can be considered the ‘worst case scenario’ in obtaining data transfer speeds and many enthusiasts like AS SSD for their needs. Transfer speeds are displayed on the left with IOPS results on the right.
In AS SSD the MyDigitalSSD BP5e Slim 7 Series reaches an overall score of 1175 points! Sequential speeds are great once again with 527MB/s read and 502MB/s write. 4K read is a bit better compared to CDM, but write is a bit slower at 69MB/s. Furthermore, it reaches 100K IOPS read and nearly 80K IOPS write! This is very impressive and shows the strength of this controller paired with Toshiba’s TLC.
ANVIL STORAGE UTILITIES PROFESSIONAL
Anvil’s Storage Utilities (ASU) are the most complete test bed available for the solid state drive today. The benchmark displays test results for, not only throughput but also, IOPS and Disk Access Times. 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 use in our benchmark testing.
Finally, similar to that of the other test results, we see very good performance yet again. Overall, the BP5e reached 4708 points. Sequential performance is over 500MB/s for both reads and writes and 4K performance hasn’t varied much at all.
