Performance and Benchmarks
ATTO Disk Benchmark
ATTO disk benchmarks show a peak write speed of 457 MB/sec, while read speed reaches 520 MB/sec. Slightly lower than I expected.
For Crystal DiskMark, the Adata XPG SX930 240GB gives a maximum of 521.6 MB/sec read speed, while maximum write speed is around 461.5 MB/sec.
Anvil Storage Utilities
Anvil Storage Utilities shows us the IOPS performance of the Adata XPG SX930 – 240GB. We have got a maximum of 52.4K for read (which is lower than I expected), and 71.3K for write.
PCMark 8 (Disk Benchmark)
We got an overall storage score of 4955 on the PCMark 8 Disk Benchmark, with a storage bandwidth if 240.8 MB/sec. Now that’s better … much better than I expected.
