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 non-compressible 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.
Again, the Samsung SSD 750 EVO is right on the tail of the 850 EVO, we did see a performance dip with incompressible data, however, the delta is only about 10%.
