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.
Once again, we see the SanDisk CloudSpeed 1000E offering competitive performance, bunched up right in the middle of the pack, here. Please note, however, that the drive's performance is not affected by the compressibility of the data being transferred. The drive offers consistent performance, regardless of the data type.
