Crucial BX500 480GB SSD Review

IOMeter is another open source synthetic benchmarking tool which is able to simulate the various loads placed on hard drive and solid state drive technology.


We test with both random read and write 4k tests, as shown above. There are many ways to measure the IOPS performance of a Solid State Drive, so our results will sometimes differ from manufacturer’s quoted ratings. We do test all drives in exactly the same way, so the results are directly comparable.

 
When dealing with random 4K data the BX500 drive get a healthy boost in write performance from the dynamic SLC buffer that Crucial have used to improve performance.
