OCZ Trion 150 SSD Review: Affordable, Fast 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 compressibility of data being transferred on the Trion 150 series had little to no impact on performance. Transfer rates were consistent across the board here, save for a very slight spike of a few MB/s in the write test.
