Test programs:

The following benchmark programs are used for SSD speed testing:

Test environment:

The latest high-end hardware (2021) is used for the tests. This allows the full performance of the storage media to be exploited:

Gen. 4 SSDs (PCIe 4.0) can now also be tested using the AMD X570 chipsets.

NEW - Test environment for PCIe 5.0 SSD testing:

Since 2023 we have a new test PC that allows us to test PCIe 5.0 SSDs.
