G.Skill Phoenix Blade 480GB PCIe x8 SSD Review


AS SSD is a great free tool designed just for benching Solid State Drives. It performs an array of sequential read and write tests, as well as random read and write tests with sequential access times over a portion of the drive. AS SSD includes a sub suite of benchmarks with various file pattern algorithms but this is difficult in trying to judge accurate performance figures.

The excellent level of performance offered by G.Skill’s quad RAID 0 solution continues in the AS SSD benchmark. Not even OCZ’s similar RevoDrive 350 can keep up with the well-tuned firmware deployed alongside the G.Skill hardware.

Sequential performance is particularly impressive and falls pretty much in line with G.Skill’s 1,900MBps read and 1,050MBps write claims.
