AS-SSD Benchmark

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 family.

Beginning with sequential read and write performance, the Patriot Wildfire Solid State Drive produced 498.63 MB/s read speed, and 244.83 MB/s write performance. Because this benchmark uses compressed data, sequential file transfer speeds are reported lower than with other tools using uncompressed data. For this section, we will concentrate on the operational IOPS performance using compressed data. Single-threaded 4K IOPS performance delivers 14.71 MB/s read and 64.36 MB/s write, while the 64-thread 4K reads recorded 194.07 MB/s and write performance was 197.45 MB/s.

AS-SSD 64-thread 4KB IOPS performance results are displayed in the chart below, which compares several enthusiast-level storage products currently on the market. In these 64-thread 4KB IOPS performance tests the Patriot Wildfire outperformed other SSDs and kept pace with the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS Edition. The chart is sorted by total combined performance, which helps to illustrate which products offer the best operational input/output under load:

Benchmark Reviews uses a five tier layer rating. The last one being value and Patriot shows their SSD prices are a bit too high. Warranty could also be better. Other than those two items it is a fine product.
