Test Setup

CPU: Intel Core i7-6770K @ 4.5GHz
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15
Motherboard: ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 2400MHz 8GB (2x4GB)
PSU: Cooler Master V1200 1200w Platinum
OS: Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

Methodology:

All benchmarks are done on a fresh install of Windows 7 Professional 64-bit that is fully up-to-date with Windows Updates to ensure that the performance reflects a real-world scenario and not that of a tweaked benchmarking system. Every benchmark runs for a total of three times and then an average is taken of those results.

Benchmarks:

AS SSD – 4K read and write speeds & sequential read and write speeds
ATTO Disk Benchmark – Sequential read and write speeds
Crystal Disk Mark 3.0 – Sequential read and write speeds
4.75GB Transfer Test – Time taken in seconds to transfer files from our test system SSD; fastest wins!
