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.
With a read score of 2949, the Seagate FireCuda 530 sits firmly on the top of the results chart although its write score of 2917 is less impressive. The FireCuda 530's scores show significant improvements over the previous generation FireCuda 520 scores of 2484 and 2690 for reads and writes respectively.
