Anvil Storage Utilities
Version and / or Patch Used: RC6
So, what is Anvil Storage Utilities? Anvil Storage Utilities is 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. The author, 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
Phison's controllers work with compressible and incompressible data differently. With compressible data, the Patriot Blaze shows very high results, similar to many of the fastest SATA III SSDs on the market today. With incompressible data, performance drops for both reads and writes in many of the categories shown.
Low Queue Depth Read IOPS
Low queue depth random read performance places the Blaze in the same class as SandForce SF-2281, Crucial MX100, and other low-cost SSDs in this capacity on the market.
High Queue Depth Read IOPS
The high queue depth performance numbers show a different story though. Up top, the Blaze 240GB only musters 38K random read IOPS.
Low Queue Depth Write IOPS
The Patriot Blaze 240GB scales random write IOPS well. At QD4, the drive manages to achieve over 60K.
High Queue Depth Write IOPS
Peak IOPS performance comes at QD8, where the Blaze 240GB gets close to 70K random write IOPS. Increasing the load after QD8 increases latency, and the random write IOPS decline at that point.
