Test Environment and Copy, ISO Creation, & Game Loading

Here, we'll go through a quick overview of the hardware used in the test system. All of the tests will be entirely down to the drive, but for consistency's sake we include this.

  • Storage - Team Group Delta T-Force Delta TUF RGB SSD, 240GB.
  • CPU - AMD Ryzen R7 1700X, 3.8Ghz.
  • RAM - Team Group T-Force TUF RGB, 3200Mhz.
  • GPU - AMD Radeon Sapphire RX580 Nitro+ 8GB.
  • PSU - Corsair 650W TX-M, 80+ Gold.
  • Operating System - Windows 10 Home 64 Bit, Build 1803.
  • Anvil's Storage Utilities.
  • ATTO Disk benchmark v2.4.
  • Crystal Disk Mark.
  • SiSoft Sandra Storage Benchmark.
  • HDTune Pro.
  • AS SSD Benchmark.
  • File Copy test (Compressed/Uncompressed).

SSD Performance

In this round of benchmarks, we start off with our real-world file copy tests. Currently, certain controllers benefit from compressed files, while others don't. Certain storage units hate small files, others work well with them. So it only makes sense to do some manual tests on that. Any storage unit's nightmare, whether that is an HDD or SSD, is storing really small files as fast as possible. Here, we start with some basic

File Copy

The most basic and simple test anyone can perform. We drop a combination of compressed and uncompressed files onto the SSD for it to copy and write, then copy back. Performance wise, here, it's actually very solid, seeing a consistent and sustained 468MB/s, with some small fluctuations as the various parts of the cut/paste get completed. This is actually better than I expected. Doing the same test, but the other way, led to almost exactly the same results. In fact, you could get a different result. Realistically speaking, though, performance here was nearly identical to copying to the drive. I suspect that a sustained longer write/read would see performance drop over time, and this was basically confirmed to me later on in the testing suite.



Game Load Times

Naturally, you'll want to be storing games on your SSD, though 240-256GB won't get you very far in 2019. That said, it's certainly enough for at least 3-4 large AAA grade titles like Battlefield/Assassins Creed, which happen to be the two largest games on my PC regularly. Here, we see 466MB/s for the game tests. I should point out that we are using AS SSD's Game/ISO test here, which provides very consistent results on what happens to be a very fresh SSD.
