Reading Benchmarks

HD Tune

HD Tune Test – Sequential reading test

As it was expected the HyperX Predator is by far that fastest SSD that I have tested up to this point.

ATTO disk benchmark

ATTO has become a standard tool for measuring the data throughput of HDDs and SSDs. It measures the reading and writing performance, using different file sizes and block sizes.

The Predator SSD had no issues reaching its maximum rated read speed of 1400MB/Sec and also 1000MB/Sec for writing speed. Everything so far is looking excellent.

CrystalDiskMark 3.0

CrystalDiskMark is quite a handy benchmarking application, as it focuses on the file sizes that can cause problems for a system drive.

In this test the HyperX Predator SSD gives an excellent result.

The two graphs below will give a more detailed view of how the HyperX Predator SSD compares with other SSDs that I have tested.

Here I present the graph for the read speed tests. You can compare the HyperX Predator SSD performance with other drives I have tested.

Finally, the results for the HyperX Predator SSD for write speed, and again you can compare it with other drives.

AS SSD Benchmark

AS SSD benchmark is a benchmarking tool specifically designed to test SSDs. The application tests sequential reading and writing performance, 4K random reading and writing performance.

AS SSD benchmark also tests 4K threaded performance. This is very exciting, as this test is the first available test that I am aware of, that simulates how a PC operating system actually works. A modern PC and OS, such as Windows Vista/7 does not just run a single thread at a time, it runs many threads. The AS SSD benchmark "4K 64Thrd" tests run 64 threads simultaneously throughout the test. If this result is good, then you can be pretty sure the drive will perform extremely well as a system drive.

After the tests complete, AS SSD benchmark derives a total score for the drive being tested. This is based on all aspects of the test results, and gives an indication of how the drive is performing overall.

Now let’s look at the results for the HyperX Predator SSD in the form of a screenshot. All our other comparison drives’ results are presented in the form of a graph.

Again the HyperX Predator shows the best result that I have seen so far.

Let's head to the next page and run some tests using PCMark 8.....
