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.
AS SSD works with incompressible data, which highlights the particular strengths of this Corsair Performance pro 256GB solid state drive. Interestingly, the Corsair drive scores more than the Samsung 830 Series 512GB which is also particularly strong with incompressible data.
Above, we have included some results from other solid state drives we have tested in recent months.
