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.
It didn't compete with the other drives in terms of its transfer speeds in the AS-SSD Compression benchmark, but the Intel SSD 710 series drive offered flat, consistent performance with all data types, whether compressible or not.
