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 drive didn’t fare so well in the much more stringent AS-SSD benchmark when it came to reads producing a score 1242. Write performance on the other hand was very good, giving a score of 1375, the highest we have seen to date in this benchmark from a M.2 drive.
