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.
In the read tests, Crucial's MX200 drives was able to keep pace at the front of the pack with only a MB/s of separation. The gap widened when turning our attention to write performance, with the MX200 drives trailing the top spot by around 20MB/s/
