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 deals exclusively with incompressible data and the results from the Micron M600 drive are excellent – the overall score of 1,000 is high. The Marvell controller doesn’t exhibit weaknesses when shifting between compressible and incompressible data streams.
