AS determines the performance of Solid State Drives (SSD). The tool contains four synthetic as well as three practice tests. The synthetic tests are to determine the sequential and random read and write performance of the SSD. These tests are carried out without the use of the operating system caches.


In all synthetic tests the test file size is 1GB. AS can also determine the access time of the SSD, the access of which the drive is determined to read through the entire capacity of the SSD (Full Stroke). The write access test is only to be met with a 1 GB big test file. At the end of the tests three values for the read and write as well as the overall performance will be issued. In addition to the calculated values which are shown in MB/s, they are also represented in IO per seconds (IOPS).




We are starting to really get to love the AS SSD Benchmark. Here we want to point out the 4K read and write numbers. With the early firmware we see the 4K read numbers running much lower than the write 4K. The write 4K numbers are the highest we have ever seen in testing…ever.


The 4K numbers are important to us because so many of the files we read and write are of this variety.
