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.
Using the more strenuous AS SSD benchmark, the drive sits just below WD’s Black PCIe drive with its read score of 822. However its write score of 774 is faster than the WD drive.
