7. Anvil Pro
The next benchmark is the Anvil Pro, an ‘all inclusive’ storage utility. The software is tests transfer speeds as well as IOPS The IOPS tests can be configurable with preset testing scenarios for read (Seq 4MB, 4K, 4K QD4, 4K QD16, 32K and 128K), write (Seq 4MB, 4K, 4K QD4, 4K QD16) and mixed IO.
We used the software with the Crucial BX200 960GB SSD and tested the drive with 0-fill compression (RAW), 8% compression, 25% compression, 45% compression, 67% compression and finally 100 % (incompressible data). Below are the results with 100-fill compression.
Overall, the Crucial BX200 960GB SSD achieved a total score of just 3543.4. 4K writes have dropped significantly down to just 53MB/s. Overall, they reached total scores in the mid-3,000 range which lands them in the back of the pack compared to their competition:
