AS SSD v1.1.3466.29641: AS SSD is a benchmark designed for the speeds of solid state drives. However, it will also work for traditional hard drives. It is designed to measure the read and write speeds and access times for set block sizes. It also assigns a score to the read, write, and overall performance of the drive.
The only weakness shown by the Vertex 3 is in the 4K read testing. However, the 4K writes are well above the previous-generation hardware, a trend that is seen in a few of the tests so far. Overall, the Vertex 3 is the highest-performing drive in this test — another continuing trend.
