AS SSD v1.1.3466.29641: AS SSD is a benchmark designed for the speeds of solid state drives, however it also will work for traditional hard drives as well. 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.
The scores here show the drives swapping the performance lead based on the specifics of the benchmark. The TORQX delivers a higher performance on the read tests but falls behind on the write testing. Even so, it scores better than the standard disk drives. The access time tests show just what the real strengths are. The TORQX could access the same piece of data 94 times before the 1TB drive actually reads the data.
