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 latency scoring shows that, while the drive is faster overall, the time to get the data flowing is slightly longer than the rest of the mechanical drives.
