Fujitsu F100 512GB SSD Review

Anvil Storage Utilities

 

Version and / or Patch Used: RC6

 

So, what is Anvil Storage Utilities? Well, 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 QD16.

 

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

 

We can use Anvil several different ways 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.

 

 

0-Fill Compressible Data

Incompressible Data

The Fujitsu F100 handles compressible and incompressible data the same way, so there isn't a performance loss when working with incompressible files.

 

 

Low Queue Depth Read IOPS

High Queue Depth Read IOPS

As a value drive, we don't expect the F100 to deliver 10K random read IOPS at QD, but users still want a drive that scales. That's exactly what the Fujitsu F100 does; it scales all the way to 72K random read IOPS at queue depth 32.

 

 

Low Queue Depth Write IOPS

High Queue Depth Write IOPS

The Intel flash allows the F100 to deliver high random write performance at low queue depths. At the upper end of the queue depth scale, the F100 reaches 72K. By queue depth eight, the F100 nearly reaches peak random write performance.
