AS SSD is an SSD benchmarking software which uses incompressible data, which presents a challenge to Sandforce drives, or other controllers which utilize data compression. Sandforce uses DuraWrite compression and thus will not perform as well with incompressible data as it would otherwise.
The HyperX sports Synchronous NAND, which means the SandForce controller does not take as big of a performance hit when working with incomprressible files. The drive performed exceedly well again in threaded operations, surpassing the next test subject by over 40 MB/s in the read category. Write speeds in sequential tests also bested the other competitors, and access times were up to par.
