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.
ASU – 0FILL (COMPRESSIBLE DATA)
The newest version of Anvil Storage Utilities is RC1 and, unlike previous versions, its standard test pattern tests incompressible data much like AS SSD. For this reason we have included both the former oFill (or compressible) results above and incompressible below.
ASU INCOMPRESSIBLE DATA
With full identification of our Z77 Test Bench on the left and the Comay Venus Pro 3 SSD on the right, ASU easily surpasses any other synthetic benchmark available and compounds that with both transfer speed and IOPS results. We can see in the first chart that the 86,000 IOPS result meets specifications but, something that is excellent to see in such a utility are the extremely low disk access times.
HDTUNE PRO VER. 4.6
HDTune Pro is a great software program that lets us have a look at all aspects of testing through several separate tests. For today’s testing, we are only going to include Random Testing and Extras in order to demonstrate how well the Comay Venus Pro 3 operates in SATA 3 transfer speeds:
