Alex Schepeljanski of Alex Intelligent Software develops the free AS SSD Benchmark utility for testing storage devices. The AS SSD Benchmark tests sequential read and write speeds, input/output operational performance, and response times. Because this software receives frequent updates, Benchmark Reviews recommends that you compare results only within the same version.
Beginning with sequential read and write performance, the Corsair Nova V128 Solid State Drive produced 234.8 MB/s read speed, and 182.2 MB/s write performance. 4K IOPS performance delivers 22.2 MB/s read and 9.7 MB/s write.
Compared to the recently-tested ADATA S599 SandForce SF-1200 based SSD, sequential read and write performance records 207.0 MB/s read speed, but only a 130.6 MB/s write. Conversely, 4K IOPS performance swings in the opposite direction, with 16.1 MB/s read and 50.1 MB/s write.
As the AS SSD Benchmark tool matures, our test results will be charted for comparison against other Solid State Drive products. Suggestions for the test result section to be included in the chart (Seq/4K/Acc Time/Score/etc) are welcome.
In the next section, Benchmark Reviews tests transfer rates using ATTO Disk Benchmark.
