HD Tune – Sequential reading test

I present the graph below for comparison
with other recently tested drives.

Micron M600 SSD is slightly faster than the
Crucial
MX100
, overall it’s a nice result to start my tests.


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.

ATTO was able to extract the maximum out of
the Micron M600 SSD especially when it comes to write speed.


CrystalDiskMark 3.0

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

Once again we see that the Micron M600 was
able to give a very impressive result in the sequential test. Reading speed is
also very high, and once again the M600 SSD gave an impressive result.

Below I am posting two graphs that give a
more detailed view of the differences between the Micron M600 SSD and the other
SSDs that I have tested so far.

Here
I present the graphs for the read speed tests. You can compare the Micron M600
SSD with other drives.

I
continue by presenting the graphs for the write speed tests. You can compare
the Micron M600 SSD with other drives.

It’s clear that the Micron M600 128GB is a
very impressive drive for its size, and the results can verify that.


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 Micron
M600 128GB SSD in the form of a screenshot. All our other comparison drives’
results are presented in the form of a graph.

Simply Impressive, especially for a
128GB SSD.

 

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