AS-SSD Compression Testing
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 compressibility of data being transferred on the Intel SSD DC P3608 had virtually no impact on performance whatsoever. Transfer rates were mostly consistent across the board here, save for some small variances at either end of the spectrum.
