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 may be 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 MyDigitalSSD BP5e solid state drive produced excellent results: over 518MB/s for sequential reads and 434MB/s for sequential writes. The 4K-64 thread test we concentrate on in this benchmark produced 223MB/s reads and 320MB/s writes.
MyDigitalSSD BP5e Results
The chart below summarizes AS-SSD 64-thread 4KB IOPS performance results among a variety of enthusiast-level SSDs. The MyDigitalSSD MDS7-BP5e-0256G turns in a solid performance in 4K-64 thread writes, with 320MB/s, but is behind the pack in reads, at only 223MB/s.
In the next section, Benchmark Reviews tests transfer rates using ATTO Disk Benchmark.
