Got my new hardrive today.... Teehee... weird benchmark stuff


Recommended Posts

So i got a single Mushikin Chronos Deluxe 240 Gig SSD http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820226226 this things tears it up, I dont even get to watch windows load anymore but it seems like benchmarks are all over the place. Atto however is very consistant,. here are some pics of the scores.

My question is, why does Atto read the true speed and crystal mark and AS SSD are reading like in the 240ish region, Atto clearing reads 500 - 550ish

This is the weird one, crystal mark also registers low writes too.

Although this is for ocz drives, the same applies for most other ssd drives too.

Everyone has their own idea of what constitutes ‘intended’ usage.

And where Benchmarking fits in to usage, to show speed, or analyze faults.

All SSD have a life span based on Program Erase Cycles (PEc).

These in turn are triggered by writes to the nand flash blocks/pages.

Benchmarks like Crystal Disk Mark and AS SSD should be used sparingly.

They write a considerable amount of un-compressible data to your OCZ SSD.

Careful use is advised, particularly with Sandforce controller SSD.

This because they encrypt and compress data "on-the-fly".

That doesnt answer my question, though thank you for the information, I also read under normal conditions current ssds have enough reads/write cycles to last roughly 30 years... then there is trim which helps with this too collecting junk making sure the ssd is clean.
