ANVIL STORAGE UTILITIES
As with ATTO and Crystal DiskMark, Anvil conducts several tests before the final result and we did not realize any improvement through subsequent testing. Anvil does show us IOPS results which make it a good software for inclusion.
A quick look at the Anvil results makes one thing obvious; the Hybrid is functioning as an SSD whereas the XT is functioning as a hard drive. The two things that make this abundantly clear are the response times and the IOPS results. To the XT’s credit, however, we are seeing response times of under 9ms which confirms that it is caching, just to a much smaller degree than the Revo Hybrid.
Since we have the space now, lets throw in the Anvil results of the Revo when it was tested as an SSD.
