Compressible sequential read/write transfers max out at 554/528 MB/s, both of which exceed Samsung's listed sequential specifications. Keep in mind this is our OS volume, and it is filled to 75% of its total capacity. Maximum sequential read performance is achieved at a 2MB transfer size, maximum sequential write performance at 512KB transfers.

 

Sequential Write

The 750 and 850 EVO's perform almost identically dominating the field at transfer sizes of 0.5-16KB. The PNY CS2211 finishes the test with the highest transfer rate.

 

Sequential Read

All of the drives in our test pool perform in a similar fashion. Overall, OCZ's TRION 150 delivers the best performance of the bunch.

 

 

Anvil Storage Utilities

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.1.0

 

Anvil's Storage Utilities is a storage benchmark designed to measure the storage performance of SSDs. The Standard Storage Benchmark performs a series of tests; you can run a full test or just the read or write test, or you can run a single test, i.e. 4k QD16.

Scoring

Anvil's scoring gives a good indication of a drive's overall performance. Samsung's EVO series SSDs easily outperform the competing drives in our test pool. The 850 EVO delivers the highest score followed closely by the 250GB and 500GB 750 EVO.

 

(Anvil) Read IOPS through Queue Depth Scale

The EVO's deliver the highest IOPS, but SanDisk's read-centric X400 delivers better performance from QD4-QD8.

Samsung states that their EVO line of SSD's are designed to deliver superior performance at QD1-2 and we can see this fact represented on our chart.
