MyDigitalSSD BP3 256GB mSATA SSD Revisited - 3.2 Firmware Update - Benchmarks - Passmark

MDSSD and Phison have a new firmware ready for the S8 SATA III controller. Under normal circumstances we'd expect a small performance increase, but when the promise of a 4x increase was made, we knew we had to see for ourselves.

Many users complain that I/O Meter is too complicated of a benchmark to replicate results so my quest to find an alternative was started. Passmark has added several multi-user tests that measure a hard drives ability to operate in a multi-user environment.

 

 

The tests use different settings to mimic basic multi-user operations as they would play out on your server. Variances is read / write percentage as well as random / sequential reads are common in certain applications, Web Servers read nearly 100% of the time while Database Servers write a small amount of data.

 

The Workstation test is the only single user environment and will be similar to how you use your system at home.

The most shocking performance comes from the enterprise tests, though. Here we see the MyDigitalSSD BP3 256GB going all SSDs Gone Wild. The File Server test shows a near 4x increase in performance and the other tests also see large gains. The MDSSD BP3 isn't an enterprise drive, but it's starting to think it is.
