Added to the benchmark suite is this nice little German application called AS SSD Benchmark. This test gives an extensive result set. The test is popular, so just for reference we always show the results, here we go.
What continuously jumps out is the fantastic write performance. Roughly 312 MB/sec sequential writes is on par with what we measured with a file copy.
AS-SSD returns a weighed score, I gathered some of the latest SSDs and placed them in a chart, this shows how fast the SSD really is.

This test creates test patterns on the target drive which are random and vary in the level of compression used in the test data. This ranges from 0% compressible to 100% compressible.
Basically for this chart you want a straight line as much as possible here (no compression performance loss) based upon the highest performance in MB/sec.
