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.

AS-SSD Benchmark uses compressed data, so 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 in this section.

Beginning with sequential transfer performance, the 240GB HyperX Savage SSD solid state drive produced speeds up to 517.81 MB/s for reads and 504.50 MB/s writes. These speeds were among the best we’ve recorded for any high-performance SSD, and even surpassed the 256GB Samsung SSD 850 PRO. Single-threaded 4K IOPS performance tests delivered 37.14 MB/s reads and 73.96 MB/s writes, while the 64-thread 4K read test recorded 400.90 MB/s with write performance at 333.15 MB/s.

240GB HyperX Savage SSD AS-SSD Results

AS-SSD 64-thread 4KB IOPS performance results are displayed below, comparing several enthusiast-level storage products currently on the market. In the 64-thread 4KB IOPS performance tests, the 240GB HyperX Savage SSD easily surpassed the other competition, while offering far improved sustained performance over SSDs of similar capacity. The chart below is sorted by total combined performance, which helps illustrate which products offer the best operational input/output under load:

    “COMMENT QUESTION: Which brand of SSD do you trust most?”
    INTEL. Above all else.
    Who could possibly make a better SSD than the maker of the cpu that controls it?
    I just received a freebie from GALAX, when I ordered a GALAX GTX 980 HOF video-card from their factory.
    The SSD is their new “Gamer” series SSD and it’s 240GB.
    I haven’t had time to try it out, but it isn’t an INTEL, plus it’s also the largest SSD that GALAX makes.
    Way too small for much of anything except a few games.
    I’m waiting on my INTEL 1.2TB PCI-E SSD to arrive.
    The absolutely fastest SSD ever invented, bar none!
