ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro Solid State Drive Review

Testing – Anvil, PCMark Vantage & AIDA64
The next test is Anvil Storage Utilities, which is a really great piece of software. The SSD benchmark gives you scores for both read and write as well as a combined score.

Next up is PCMark 8, we will be running the typical Storage Benchmark.


We have added back AIDA64’s Disk Benchmark to our testing. The linear test will actually scan from the first physical sector to the last on the test drive. This gives a good representation of sustained read / write operations. First We will be running the linear read test using a 8MB block size.

Then finally the linear write test using a 8MB block size.

As you can see SLC caching is in place on this drive as performance drops once that cache is filled. ADATA adding that second cache chip definitely helps though.
