We test both Kingston SSD and mechanical HDD with a variety of applications so we can see the potential performance available.
CrystalDiskMark highlights strong performance from the Kingston drive, hitting peaks of close to 500 MB/s in the sequential read test. Write performance is a little lower, but perfectly acceptable. MSI have included a fast 7,200 rpm hard drive in the MSI GE62 2QD, and it scores around the 150MB/s mark in both sequential read and write tests.
ATTO highlights excellent performance characteristics from the Solid State drive, hitting 550 MB/s read and 500 MB/s write.
We used AS SSD as a final test on the Kingston Solid State drive. The final score of 751 points is healthy.
Its quite the looker, but does this svelte design from ASUS tick all the boxes?
