AS determines the performance of Solid State Drives (SSD). The tool contains four synthetic as well as three practice tests. The synthetic tests are to determine the sequential and random read and write performance of the SSD. These tests are carried out without the use of the operating system caches.
In all synthetic tests the test file size is 1GB. AS can also determine the access time of the SSD, the access of which the drive is determined to read through the entire capacity of the SSD (Full Stroke). The write access test is only to be met with a 1 GB big test file. At the end of the tests three values for the read and write as well as the overall performance will be issued. In addition to the calculated values which are shown in MB/s, they are also represented in IO per seconds (IOPS).
Note: AS SSD is a great benchmark for many tests, but since Crystal Disk Mark covers a broader range of 4K tests and HD Tune Pro covering sequential speeds, we will only use the Copy Benchmark from AS SSD.
- Copy Benchmark
It's gratifying to know that SandForce and their partners listen to reviewers and look to improve their products based in part to what we write about. Copying data, especially compressed data, has been the low point for SandForce controllers. Here we see this issue was addressed with the new firmware and the Zalman N Series proves that the SF-1200 can now tackle these tasks at a much higher rate than drives loaded with older firmware.
What has us surprised is that the Zalman N Series 128GB drive is now on even terms with the Crucial RealSSD C300 128GB drive in these tests and even manages to perform better than the 128GB C300 in two of the tests. Until today I didn't think this would be possible, but the numbers don't lie, the performance is now there.
