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 transfer performance, the Comay Venus Pro 3 solid state drive produced speeds up to 502.43 MB/s for reads and 307.74 MB/s writes. Because this benchmark uses compressed data, sequential file transfer speeds are reported lower than with other tools using uncompressed data. For this reason, we will concentrate on the operational IOPS performance for this section.

Single-threaded 4K IOPS performance tests deliver 18.85 MB/s read and 63.44 MB/s write, while the 64-thread 4K reads recorded 214.64 MB/s and write performance was 243.06 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 OCZ Octane series did not outperformed many other SSDs, but did surpass the older Indilinx Barefoot series. The chart below is sorted by total combined performance, which helps illustrate which products offer the best operational input/output under load:

In the next section, Benchmark Reviews tests transfer rates using ATTO Disk Benchmark.

Pretty amazing. How long did it take for storage devices to catch up to the SATA 3 standard? Now after only a couple of years, storage devices are already near saturation for SATA6. LOL totally amazing. This thing can transfer 30GB/minute.

It will still be a wait for USB 3 devices to catch up to the USB 3.0 saturation rate so we can see the benefit of USB3 to something as fast as this device. I can't wait to see CF flash or something similar come into line with the USB3 theoretical. Most cards never got past a little over half of the USB2 specs.

Olin,

You say this drive is expensive, but I didn't see a price in the review.

I don't think now is a good time to be entering any 'expensive' SSD into the market.

Yesterday I saw a sub 140 240GB Vertex3 in the wild. I paid more than that (170) for my 128GB Samsung 830 only 6 months ago.
