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.
