SSD Speed Test (Solid-State-Disks Tester)

Here you can find detailed performance, speed and benchmark tests of M.2 NVMe SSDs, SATA SSDs and USB flash drives. These can help you with a purchase decision. Soon, Gen. 5 SSDs will also be tested here. However, the availability of these SSDs is still very low. Presumably, the first products will only be available for purchase in 2023.

M.2 SSDs M.2 SSD Test

We test the new 4th generation PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD as well as the slower PCIe 3.0 x4.

Test programs:

The following benchmark programs are used for the SSD speed test:

Test environment:

The latest high-end hardware (2021) is used for the tests so that the full performance of the storage media can be exploited:

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