Performance AS SSD:

To set off on this benchmarking adventure, first we shall use AS SSD. This has become one of our standard software utilities that we use and we will be using it to test the raw input/output operations per second (IOPS). Although raw Input / Output Operations Per Second doesn't really have a lot of bearing on the desktop, it will be interesting to see how this drive stacks up with others that we've looked at in the past.

When it comes to the 64-queue depth test, this drive performs very well and in fact is only second to the OCZ Vector in a couple of instances. In other instances, it is the fastest drive we've seen. Either way, it's pretty solid in both read and write tests and manages to break the 80K barrier in both reading and write tests when tested at 4K 64QD. As you can see above, we've compared this drive with the Crucial M500 960GB drive as well as a few different iterations of the OCZ Vector series.

On the next page, we'll take a look at ATTO testing to see what kind of performance to expect with different file sizes.
