HD Tune – Sequential reading test
I present the graph below for comparison
with other recently tested drives.
The Kingston V300 s delivers considerable performance
in this test, giving an impressive result of 419.1MB/Sec average read speed.
ATTO disk benchmark
ATTO has become a standard tool for
measuring the data throughput of HDD and SSD. It measures the reading and
writing performance, using different file sizes and block sizes.
Testing the drive with ATTO we see that the
drive can reach write speeds up to 530MB/Sec, and read speeds of 550MB/Sec.
This result is very impressive considering the official specification that Kingston
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 Kingston V300 is again impressive.
I am also giving you the results with the
0FILL settings on crystal mark as a reference to what the drive can do with
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
Kingston V300 240GB SSD in the form of a screenshot. All our other comparison
drives’ results are presented in the form of a graph.
Another impressive result for the Kingston V300
SSD in this test.
The Kingston V300 SSD gives very steady,
and very impressive performance in all of our tests. It appears that Kingston
has done a very good job with the V300.
