Results - AS SSD Benchmark

AS SSD 1.7.4739 Results

AS SSD is a benchmark that uses non-compressible and completely random data. What this means is that the drives using the SandForce SF-2281 controller cannot compress the data first, which takes away one of the strong advantages of this controller. Therefore this is a useful benchmark because drives that use the SF-2281 controller or similar, don't gain an upper hand.

On AS SSD, the Vertex 460 offered improved performance across all workloads when compared to the Vertex 450. Again, the biggest improvements came when handling 4K reads and writes, with read performance netting a gain of close to 20%, whereas write speeds went up by around 25%. Expectedly, the Vector 150 still holds an edge over the Vertex 460.
