AS-SSD Compression Test

Next up we ran the Compression Benchmark built-into AS SSD, an SSD specific benchmark being developed by Alex Intelligent Software. This test is interesting because it uses a mix of compressible and incompressible data and outputs both Read and Write throughput of the drive. We only graphed a small fraction of the data (1% compressible, 50% compressible, and 100% compressible), but the trend is representative of the benchmark’s complete results.

Bring Your Translator:

Speaking of predictable SandForce performance, those SSDs typically struggle with incompressible data, and ADATA hasn’t managed to firmware-update itself away from that problem with the XPG SX900. This is a performance characteristic of all current-gen SandForce controllers, which won't be going away.
