Corsair Neutron SATA III SSD Review
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.
The Corsair Neutron's performance isn't affected by the compressibility of the data being transferred too or from the drive, unlike the SandForce-based drives represented here. In the read portion of this test, all of the drives are tightly groups. In the write portion of the test, there are larger deltas separating the drives and the Corsair Neutron finishes right about in the middle of the pack.
