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 is quite a handy benchmarking
application, as it focuses on the file sizes that can cause problems for a
In this test the HyperX Predator SSD gives an
The two graphs below will give a more
detailed view of how the HyperX Predator SSD compares with other SSDs that I
Here I present the graph for the read speed
tests. You can compare the HyperX Predator SSD performance with other drives I
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
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…..
