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 newer version automatically tests with 100% incompressible data as one might see in movies, photographs and music, whereas, the original release tested in compressible data as we see in ATTO Disk Benchmark.
Highlights of both Anvil evaluations include the high sequential read performance once again, but also, as we did with AS SSD, we are seeing very quick disk access speeds of 0.04ms at the low 4k random write level as well as a high IOPS results of 86, 46700 IOPS at 4k-QD16 which is excellent. ASU also provides the reader with complete identification of both the system and SSD being tested in the lower left and right sections.
