TSSDR TEST BENCH AND PROTOCOL
SSD testing at TSSDR differs slightly, depending on whether we are looking at consumer or enterprise storage media. In today’s testing we will be comparing performance of this Intel Optane DC P5800X NVMe Gen 4 U.2 SSD on both our Intel and AMD Gen 4 Test Bench PC’s. Both PC’s have been optimized to provide the absolute highest performance available, and have been optimized with our SSD Optimization Guide.
The software in use for today’s analysis is typical of many of our reviews and consists of Crystal Disk Info, ATTO Disk Benchmark, Crystal Disk Mark, AS SSD, Anvil’s Storage Utilities, AJA, TxBench, PCMark 10, as well as true data testing. Our selection of software allows each to build on the last and to provide validation to results already obtained. At first glance, one might think that AMD has the definite advantage. Watch closely though as we walk you through PCMark as well as True Data Testing, in addition to our typical regimen of benchmark software.

Crystal Disk Info is a great tool for displaying the characteristics and health of storage devices. It displays everything from temperatures, the number of hours the device has been powered, and even to the extent of informing you of the firmware of the device.
Looking at the Crystal Disk Info information, one can tell that we put alot of testing into this SSD with 30TB of host reads and just about 18TB of host writes. Strill, the Health is listed at 100% and she still runs very cool in comparison.
