Crystal Disk Benchmark is used to measure read and write performance through a 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.
Crystal Disk Mark’s results are lower than what ATTO reports, but, show to be better than the rated specs on the packaging. Instead of 2.6GB/s read, it achieved nearly 2.8GB/s and instead of 1.3GB/s write, it achieved 1.4GB/s write. At 4K QD1 the speeds show to be very respectable with read reaching 49MB/s and write at nearly 190MB/s.
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.
The MyDigitalSSD BPX’s AS SSD results are similar to the other E7 powered SSDs we have tested. It achieved 2779 points with sequential speeds reaching 2.37GB/s for read and 1.22GB/s for write. Furthermore, it achieved 56MB/s read in 4K QD1 reads and 131MB/s in write. In terms of IOPS the MyDigitalSSD BPX delivered nearly 240K IOPS read and over 180K IOPS write. Finally, for the Copy test it achieved very respectable results with the ISO and Game results both over 1GB/s.
ANVIL STORAGE UTILITIES PROFESSIONAL
Anvil’s Storage Utilities (ASU) is 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.
The BPX achieved an overall score of 10.5K in Anvil. Sequential read speeds reached 2GB/s and write speeds reached just over 1.2GB/s. It also achieved very respectable 4K QD1 results.
