Anvil Storage Utilities

 

Version and / or Patch Used: BETA 11

 

So what is Anvil Storage Utilities? First of all, it's a storage benchmark for SSDs and HDDs where you can check and monitor your performance. The Standard Storage Benchmark performs a series of tests, you can run a full test or just the read or the write test or you can run a single test, i.e. 4K DQ16.

 

Anvil Storage Utilities is not officially available yet but we've been playing with the beta for several months now. The author, Anvil on several international forums has been updating the software steadily and is adding new features every couple of months.

 

The software can be used several different ways and to show different aspects for each drive. We've chosen to use this software to show the performance of a drive with two different data sets. The first is with compressible data and the second data set is incompressible data. Several users have requested this data in our SSD reviews.

 

Fill Compressible Data

Incompressible Data

The OCZ Agility 4 loses a little performance when working with incompressible data. The drop off isn't as drastic as the SandForce based drives, but there is a minor discrimination that favors compressible data.
