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 sequential read/write performance. Roughly 550 to 750 MB/sec sequential writes is on par with what we measured with a file copy. But writing small files .. yeah that keeps the score down.
AS-SSD returns a weighed score, I gathered some of the latest SSDs and placed them in a chart, this shows how fast the storage unit really is.
Above: Mach Xtreme MX Express 512 GB SSD
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.
Mach Xtreme MX Express SSD Review Mach Xtreme MX Express released their PCI Express SSD, and we review it. Designed and based on PCI Express 2.0 x2/x4/x16 slot, the newcomers are 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB and 1,024 GB SSDs powered by SandForce controllers.
Mach Xtreme DS Turbo 120GB SSD review Today we look at an offering from Mach Technology (MX technology), they added no less than four new SATA 3 (SATA 3 6Gs) SSDs in their MX DS Turbo lineup, in 120GB, 180, 240GB and even 480MB capacities, all SATA 3 of course. The SSD drives come with that already prominent SandForce SF-2281 controller to deliver up to 555 MBps read and 510 MBps write speeds (when peaking).
