Plextor M6e Black Edition PCI Express SSD Review, M.2 In The Slot
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 the data being transferred has only minimal impact on performance on all of the drives tested here. The few MB/s swing shown by the Plextor drives is normal for this benchmark.
