TweakTown Storage Product Testing - Our How To Video Guide - Write Performance Degradation and Final Thoughts

By: Chris Ramseyer | Editorials in Storage | Posted: Sep 29, 2009 4:04 am

Write Performance Degradation


Now that the drive has been thrashed it is time to wrap up the testing by going back to an unpartitioned state and retesting the write performance with HD Tune Pro's STR Write Test. This final test will show the drive at its worst performance. Windows 7 is the first Windows based operating system to support the TRIM command and with it your SSD will revert back to an optimal state on its own, but until the process is complete your drive could be running at these speeds.



Final Thoughts


This is an article that I have wanted to write for quite a while now and am glad it is now available to you as a reference. It is important to remember that this is a living document and as more tests are added to the suite we will add them to the document.


I would like to thank ASUS, AVADirect, Leadtek, Noctua and LSI for contributing the hardware that gives us the foundation to test storage products to their maximum performance levels.
