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).

 

Note: AS SSD is a great benchmark for many tests, but since Crystal Disk Mark covers a broader range of 4K tests and HD Tune Pro covering sequential speeds, we will only use the Copy Benchmark from AS SSD.

The same is true with the copy benchmark. Here we see the newer firmware found on the FTM-25 doing a better job of the firmware that was on the Vertex 2 when we tested it. This was a really big deal for SandForce when the latest firmware was released since the SF drives were a bit slower than the competition when working with compressed data. The new firmware has really enabled SandForce partners to step up their game when it comes to copying data to and from the drive when the data is compressed.
