HD Tune – Sequential reading test
I present the graph below for comparison
with other recently tested drives.
A good performance from the ADATA SP900.
ATTO disk benchmark
ATTO has become a standard tool for
measuring the data throughput of HDD and SSD. It measures the performance of
reading and writing, using different file sizes and block sizes.
As expected, ATTO was able to show the
maximum performance that the ADATA SP900 can achieve.
Crystal Disk Mark is quite a handy
benchmarking application, as it focuses on the file sizes that can cause a
problem on a system drive.
The default setting on CrystalDiskMark is
to use random data, and that gives a more realistic view on the performance of
any drive. The overall performance of the ADATA SP900 is good,
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
Now let’s look at the results for the ADATA
SP900 128GB SSD in the form of a screenshot. All our other comparison drives’
results are presented in the form of a graph.
In this test, the ADATA SP900 SSD is in the
middle, with an average score of 446MB/s.
The ADATA SP900 SSD has good overall performance..

IOMeter test results…..
