Testing – CrystalDiskMark & AS SSD
CrystalDiskMark is our next test and it has a sequential read / write test as well as a 512k and 4k random read / write test. We run this test at its normal settings and then at 0Fill.
Now if we look at these results they are almost identical, this means this drive does not suffer from any issues with incompressible data. We’ve seen this with pretty much all drives based off the Silicon Motion SM2258 controller
AS SSD Benchmark is next. This benchmark contains four synthetic as well as three practice tests. The main benchmark will give you scores in MB/s as well as IOPS.
The AS SSD Copy Benchmark gives you the speed and time it would take to load an ISO, Program and Game.
Finally we have the AS SSD Compression benchmark.
