Results: Anvil, AS SSD

Anvil

Next up we have Anvil’s Storage Utilities, a piece of software specifically designed to measure SSD performance. It’s simple to use and full of features such as endurance testing and threaded I/O read, write and mixed tests, all of which are simple to understand and easy to use.

In Anvil we see a score of 2,915 which is lower than we’d hoped for. The Sequential Write results here take a hit, and the IOPS are lower on the 4K Write test than we would prefer in comparison to other drives we’ve tested in this benchmark.

AS SSD

Next up is AS SSD which is usually the most punishing test of all with its incompressible data.

Again we see Write speeds which are lower than we’d prefer to see, and the 614 score is the result. It’s still a strong showing though. 4K and 4K-64 results are respectable, but not the quickest we’ve seen, nor the slowest either. SandForce drives struggle with incompressible data, so it’s unsurprising to see these results; this is chink in the SandForce armor.
