Sonix – AS SSD Benchmark Result

The AS SSD benchmark determines the performance of Solid State Drives (SSD). The tool contains six synthetic and three copy tests. The synthetic tests determine the sequential and random read and write performance of the SSD. These tests are carried out without using the operating system cache. In Seq-test the program measures how long it takes to read a 1 GB file to write respectively. 4K test the read and write performance is determined at random 4K blocks. The 4K-64 corresponds to the test Thrd 4K procedure except that the read and write operations are distributed to 64 threads. This test should SSDs pose with Native Command Queuing (NCQ), differences between the IDE operation mode where NCQ is not supported, and the AHCI mode. The additional compression test can measure the power of the SSD in response to compressibility of the data. This is especially for the controllers that use to increase the performance and life of the cell compression, important.

Note: If you got a really slow or low write speed with this test, try this quick fix solution. Go to Device Manager and locate Zotac Sonix from the Disk Drives. It should appear as NVMe ZTSSDPG3. Right click on it and open Properties, then click on the Policies Tab. Check or enable the “Turn off Windows write-cache buffer flushing on the device”, and be sure that the “Enable write caching on the device” is checked as well. This should fix the very slow write speed on your SSD.
