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 Micron 9100 MAX has minimal impact on performance. And once again we see exceptionally strong write performance that leads the pack. In the read test, only the dual-controller, RAIDed Intel DC P3608 offered more bandwidth.
