Samsung SSD 840 EVO mSATA Review

Article Index:   

Next we ran SiSoft SANDRA 2014, the the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. Here, we used the Physical Disk test suite and provide the results from our comparison SSDs. The benchmarks were run on unformatted drives and read and write performance metrics are detailed below.

SiSoft SANDRA 2014
Synthetic HDD Benchmarking

 

The Samsung SSD 840 EVO mSATA drive put up some excellent numbers in the lite-duty SANDRA file system benchmark, besting all of the other drives we've tested.

ATTO Disk Benchmark
More Information Here: http://bit.ly/btuV6w

ATTO is another "quick and dirty" type of disk benchmark that measures transfer speeds across a specific volume length. It measures raw transfer rates for both reads and writes and graphs them out in an easily interpreted chart. We chose .5kb through 8192kb transfer sizes and a queue depth of 6 over a total max volume length of 256MB. ATTO's workloads are sequential in nature and measure raw bandwidth, rather than I/O response time, access latency, etc.

The Samsung SSD 840 EVO mSATA drive also rocked the ATTO disk benchmark. With transfer sizes in the 4K to 64K range, nothing else could touch it.

I purchased a Samsung SSD maybe 8 months ago and absolutely LOVE it. Bootup is very fast, trimming from over 3 min using my old drive to about 30 seconds, from complete power off to ready for action.
