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 FireCuda 1TB drive displays strong performance in the AS SSD benchmark with its 2167 read and 2212 write scores. It joins its fellow 1TB class Phison PS5012-E12 / Toshiba 64-layer BiCS3 3D TLC NAND users, the Corsair Force MP510, PNY XLR8 CS3030 and Patriot’s Viper VPN100 towards the top of the results table.
