Intel SSD 730 Series: Enthusiast Class Storage
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 Intel SSD 730 offered the most consistent performance we've seen in this test. Regardless of the compressibility of the data, the SSD 730 offered the same performance across the board.
