Crystal Disk Mark benchmark at 1GB test size:
AS SSD uses incompressible data for benchmarking and can measure read/write performance in MB/s or in IOPS. AS SSD also has a Copy Benchmark which simulates ISO, Game and program performance, providing both speed and access time results.
Unlike AS SSD, ATTO disk benchmark is a 32-bit compressible data benchmark that measures read and write speeds across various file transfer sizes from 512B to 64MB to show SSD behavior.
Anvil Storage Utilities is a comprehensive storage testing program that provides plenty of information and option for each test. For this review, the SSD test was selected.
Do you suggest XPG SX8200 Pro 512GB or Corsair MP510 480GB? XPG is sligtly faster but it has 320TBW guarantee, MP510 has 800TBW guarantee.
It all depends on what is important to you really. No one is looking forward to hardware failures but everyone wants that extra performance. If you are planning to use the NVMe 24 hours a day you might want to look into Enterprize level storage. If not how often do you plan to replace your storage? In my case, I would go with all the performance I can get and worry about hardware failures further down the road.
I hope this helps.
