AS SSD v1.1.3466.29641: AS SSD is a benchmark designed for the speeds of solid state drives. It does however, also work for traditional hard drives. It is designed to measure the read and write speeds and access time for set block sizes. It also assigns a score to the read, write and overall performance of the drive.
In the sequential reads and 4k read testing, the Mushkin drive performs a bit lower than the Patriot Torqx and Intel drive. The sequential write test is dominated by the Mushkin drive. The Intel drive is the better performing drive in the rest of the write testing, but the Mushkin does perform better than the reast of the comparison drives. The overall score shows a huge difference over the rest of the drives.
