Scoring OS Disk 75% Full




AS SSD is a demanding test and the E7's with FW 2.1 deliver the goods. In this testing, the E7's with FW 2.1 even manage to outperform Toshiba's powerful RD400. Again, we see a large performance increase over the Zotac Sonix with its RC 1.1 firmware.


The 950 Pro delivers a higher total score due to its superior overall read performance. In terms of scoring, the E7 AIC with 2.1 firmware is hot on the heels of the 950 Pro. The Intel 750 1.2TB dominates this test due to its massive IOPS at high queue depths.
