HD Tune Pro - Sequential Performance
Version and / or Patch Used: 5.50
We've tested several SSDs with the Phison S8 controller over the last couple of years. Kingston, MyDigitalSSD, Patriot, and others use the S8 in low-cost SSDs. The S8 controller performs well when reading data, but has consistency issues while writing data. The sequential read performance is very high though, as you can see in this chart.
The sequential write performance with 64KB blocks (as used in this test) shows performance that averages 380 MB/s. This is lower than many drives on the market today, but higher than both products on the market with 3-bit per cell (TLC) flash.
HD Tach - Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes
Version and / or Patch Used: 22.214.171.124
We run HD Tach after a number of sequential and random write tests to the full user area of the drive. The Patriot Torch surprised us here since many of the products we've tested that use this controller show sharp drops in sequential write performance. It appears that Phison has tweaked the firmware to deliver a more consistent experience.
