Tune Test – Sequential reading test
The Netac N550S Elite SSD showed very good
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.
ATTO is the test where almost every SSD is
able to achieve its maximum rated speed, and the Netac N550S Elite I s no
exception to this rule.
CrystalDiskMark is quite a handy
benchmarking application, as it focuses on the file sizes that can cause problems
for a system drive.
The numbers continue to be encouraging for
the Netac N550S Elite SSD, and for a TLC SSD this is a very good result.
The two graphs below will give a more
detailed view of how the Netac N550S Elite compares with other SSDs that I have
Here I present the graph for the read speed
tests. You can compare the Netac N550S Elite performance with other drives I
Finally the results for the Netac N550S
Elite 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 Netac
N550S Elite 240GB SSD in the form of a screenshot. All our other comparison
drives’ results are presented in the form of a graph.
Again the result is very good for a TLC
drive, and it’s also very close to the one that you see on the Netac product
Let’s head to the next page and run some
tests using PCMark 8…..
