Results – AS SSD
For our AS SSD benchmark, we also performed two tests between the native Windows 10 NVMe driver and Samsung’s NVMe driver rev. 2.1 from December.
With Samsung’s NVMe driver rev. 2.1, the SM961 receives a total score of 3,207, or 1,457 for reads and 1,015 for writes.
With the native Windows 10 NVMe driver, the drive is reporting incorrect scores for sequential writes and 4K random writes. By comparison, however, the drive manages to drop nearly 400MB/s in 4K random writes, while increasing by 64MB/s in sequential reads.
