AS SSD COPY BENCHMARK TESTING
The AS SSD Copy Benchmark is probably the closest ‘true to life’ test available in any of the synthetic benchmark tests available today. It simply takes three different files, an .ISO, a program and a game and moves these from one part of the SSD to another, monitoring the time taken to transfer and maximum transfer speed reached. For our purposes today, our charts will reflect first the time taken for the transfer, and then the maximum transfer speed. As well, RAID and single SSD testing will be combined.
FILE TRANSFER TIME
Looking at the top speeds, it just doesn’t get better than transferring a file in less than a second. We will elaborate on this a bit later with some actual file transfers of a large volume.
Much the same can be said here when we are transferring at 1.8GB/s. That is the equivalent two 2.5 HD movies a second.
REAL TIME FILE TRANSFER
For this test, we used a 25.5GB file consisting of 1x Blu-ray movie, 3x 3D HD movies and 8xHD movies, and transferred the folder from one part of the logical drive to another.
As much as you have to truly appreciate moving 25.5GB of files in less than a second, even the transfer speed of 1min 16 seconds from a single drive is amazing. Great performance!
