Samsung SSD 850 EVO SATA Solid State Drive Review

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 to/from the Samsung SSD 850 EVO has no impact on performance. Whether the data was highly-compressible or not compressible at all, the 850 EVO put up the exact same transfer rates.
