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 Patriot WildFire offered the best write performance across the board in the AS SSD compression benchmark. The SandForce-based drives with synchronous NAND were all tightly grouped in the read benchmark, however. This is another test where the original Pyro's asynchronous NAND results in much lower scores than the newer SE.
