NOTE: All benchmark screenshots will be AMD first, Intel second.
ATTO is a timeless benchmark used to provide manufacturers with data used for marketing storage products.
Ryzen delivers better sequential write speeds than Intel at transfers of 64KB and higher. Sequential read performance with larger file transfers are about equal. However, Intel delivers where it matters most; small sequential files. For some unknown reason, read transfers with at 16KB took a nose dive on the Ryzen platform. We ran ATTO another time to see if it would happen again, and ATTO would not even run.
Anvil Storage Utilities
Anvil's Storage Utilities is a storage benchmark designed to measure the storage performance of SSDs. The Standard Storage Benchmark performs a series of tests; you can run a full test or just the read or write test, or you can run a single test, i.e. 4k QD16.
AMD delivers very respectable performance; however, Ryzen is crushed by Intel's vastly super random performance. As you will notice throughout, Intel has superior random performance. A good portion of the disparity between the two platforms is due to Intel's RST driver and superior chipset. Ryzen has no SATA driver, and thus suffers the consequences.
CrystalDiskMark is disk benchmark software that allows us to benchmark sequential and 4K random performance with accuracy.
Here again, we see that Ryzen delivers superior sequential write performance. However, random performance is what matters most in an OS environment, and Ryzen gets schooled yet again by Intel. The difference in the all-important 4K QD1 metric between the two platforms is massive.
AS SSD determines the performance of SSDs. The tool contains four synthetic as well as three practice tests. The synthetic tests are to determine the sequential and random read/write performance of the SSD.
AS SSD is a demanding test and both platforms handle it well. Intel, as expected, has the advantage across the board. The Intel platform, once again, lays waste to the Ryzen platform at 4K QD1.
Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time to test the 750 EVO with PCMark 8 on the Ryzen platform, but we feel what we did get is enough for you to form an educated decision on Ryzen's SATA-based storage performance.
