Samsung 870 EVO SATA3 SSD Review (1/4TB) – Are Notebook SSDs Still a Thing? U Bet!

CRYSTAL DISK BENCHMARK VER. 7.0.0 x64

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.

THROUGHPUT

IOPS

Through Crystal DiskMark, we get our first look at IOPS which are a bit below listed 98K read and 88K write at low 4K random data transfer, but nothing to be concerned about.  We see that spec is made with the below AS SSD results, as well as with Anvil below that.

AS SSD BENCHMARK VER 1.9

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. The AS SSD results aren’t as appealing as we might like to see but do get a first look at read and write IOPS which appear to be in the general ball park of listed specs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

1TB CAPACITY

4TB CAPACITY

AJA VIDEO SYSTEM DISK TEST

The AJA Video Systems Disk Test is relatively new to our testing and tests the transfer speed of video files with different resolutions and Codec.

  1. These SATA SSDs are just way too small. I wish the would be available in 16TB memory size. At a unit price of 400,-€. Then I would buy two pieces and then I could finally copy my backups again from the dozens of 100GB M-DISC to two SSDs. One for the data and one for mirroring the data. not only my Mac mini would be happy about it… 😉

    • Yes I agree; they could easily make them available in 16TB. I also understand though that they consider sales in their manufacture and would believe the interest just isn’t there to mass produce at that, or even the 8TB capacity. Thanks for jumping in!

  2. Should be entered ting a raid configuration test…. can you??
