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 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 it hit an overall score of 758. Sequential speeds hit 524.70MB/s for reads and 144.15MB/s write. 4K speeds reach 30.16MB/s for read and 110.02MB/s for write. Furthermore, the drive reached 66,351 read IOPS and 31,884 write IOPS.
To complement this, the AS SSD Copy Bench presents us with transfer speeds for different file types. The KINGMAX’s M.2 2242 SATA SSD reached a high of 471.27MB/s for the Game test. However, for its lowest value, it was only able to hit 238.84MB/s on the Program test.
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.
In Anvil Storage Utilities the max sequential read reaches 528.52MB/s and sequential write comes in at 143.72MB/s. 4K speeds prove similar to the other benchmarks, 30.70MB/s for read and 119.17MB/s for write.
