Anvil Storage Utilities

 

Version and / or Patch Used: RC6

 

So, what is Anvil Storage Utilities? Well, it's 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. 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

Incompressible Data

The ADATA Premier Pro SP910 handles compressible and incompressible data the same.

 

Low Queue Depth Read IOPS

High Queue Depth Read IOPS

With high queue depths, the SP910 delivers a lot of IOPS performance, but down low, the SP910 lacks the same punch as more well-known mainstream drives.

 

Low Queue Depth Write IOPS

High Queue Depth Write IOPS

The random write performance scales well as the load increases, but overall, the SP910 is slightly behind products like the Ultra II, 840 EVO, and MX100.
