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 SSD 850 EVO drives finished near the top of the charts here (only a few MB/s separate the faster drives in the group) and the compressibility of the data had no impact on performance.
