Test Setup

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K @4.5GHz

Motherboard: ASUS Z97-K
RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury 2400MHz 8GB (2x4GB)

Methodology:

All benchmarks are done on a fresh install of Windows 7 Premium 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 –  Sequential read and write speeds
ATTO Disk Benchmark – Sequential read and write speeds
Crystal Disk Mark 3.0 – Sequential read and write speeds
Anvil Storage Utilities – 4K read and write IOPS & sequential read and write speeds
Windows 7 Boot Speed – Time taken in seconds from a cold boot using the BootRacer software
