AS SSD Results
AS SSD is a popular hard disk benchmarking software because it uses non-compressible and completely random data. Here, we noticed that the G RAID with Thunderbolt recorded the fastest copy times in the Copy Benchmark. This benchmark simulates copying different types of data - ISO, program and game.
The G RAID with Thunderbolt also recorded very impressive sequential read and write speeds, over 300MB/s when reading and nearly 250MB/s when writing. This is over 50% quicker than the Transcend ESD200. However, performance dipped considerably when it came to handling smaller data blocks of 4k and also on the intensive 4k, 64 threads workloads. Although the G RAID with Thunderbolt was still significantly quicker than the Seagate Backup Plus, it was no match for the Transcend ESD200 and its internal flash drive.
