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 Samsung 840 hung with the pack quite well in the AS-SSD read test, but it lagged significantly behind the field in the write test. It was, however, solidly consistent with its write scores at least, which is a good sign.
