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.
Again, the SSD960 EVO’s Intelligent TurboWrite gives it the edge over the SSD960 PRO by a far distance although its read performance is nowhere near as strong. Using the Samsung 2.0 driver with the SSD960 PRO saw the read figure drop a little but the write figure got a small but useful boost.
