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.

AS SSD Compression Benchmark
Bring Your Translator:

The Intel SSD DC S3500's performance isn't affected by the compressibility of the data being transferred on the drive, unlike the LSI SandForce-based drives shown here (the OCZ Vertex 3 and Intel 520). Performance was competitive with the SSD DC S3700, throughout.
