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 Micron RealSSD P400m offers consistent performance, regardless of the data being transferred. Overall, transfer speeds generally trailed the other drives we tested, but the P400m was just a notch behind the Intel DC S3700 throughout.
