Patriot Ignite 480GB SSD Review (Page 5)

Anvil Storage Utilities

Version and / or Patch Used: RC6

So what is Anvil Storage Utilities? First of all, 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. The author, Anvil on several international forums, has been updating the software steadily 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

Compressible data performance reads are very high with the Patriot Ignite 480GB, but drop off with incompressible data. This is a bit different from the SandForce method where incompressible data writes slow.

Low Queue Depth Read IOPS

High Queue Depth Read IOPS

After testing a set of S10 reference products for Phison and the Corsair Neutron XT, we moved this set of tests to a mix of 46% incompressible data. With compressible data the Ignite delivers just over 10K random read IOPS performance at QD1. With the mixed data the random read performance at QD1 drops to just over 7300 IOPS. Performance scales very well, nearly doubling as the queue depth increases.

Low Queue Depth Write IOPS

High Queue Depth Write IOPS

The random write performance is very good with both incompressible and compressible data.
