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 Plextor M6M 256GB drive's performance is unaffected by the compressibility of the data being transferred. Whether transferring highly compressible or incompressible data, the Plextor M6M 256GB drive's performance remains consistent.
