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.

Due to the fact that the Intel SSD 2500 Pro 240GB drive features an LSI SandForce controller, its performance will vary depending on the compressibility of the data being transferred. As you can see, the Intel SSD 2500 Pro 240GB drive performs better when transferring highly compressible data, which isn't the case with the other drives we tested.
