Phoronix Test Suite


SanDisk 64GB Serial ATA 3.0 SSD On Ubuntu Linux

Another day, another new disk drive review at Phoronix. After this week having already shared our Ubuntu Linux test results for the Kingston SSDNow V300, Western Digital WD10EZEX, and Samsung 840 EVO, the solid-state drive for review today is the SanDisk 64GB SDSSDP-064G-G25.

As covered already at length, a number of new systems are currently being commissioned for a combination of daily and per-commit testing of Debian, Arch Linux, LLVM/Clang, the upstream Linux kernel itself, and other projects. As a result, this week I have been on a bit of a buying spree with assembling extra systems for this automated test farm showcasing the Phoronix Test Suite, Phoromatic, and OpenBenchmarking.org. The SanDisk 64GB SSD (and the other HDD/SSDs this week) have been purchased for these setups but prior to setting them up in their new homes I did some testing of them from a Core i7 4770K Haswell system running Ubuntu 13.10 with the Linux 3.13 mainline kernel.

The Serial ATA 3.0 SanDisk SDSSDP-064G-G25 64GB SSD currently retails for just over $60 USD and offers up to 490MB/s sequential reads, up to 240MB/s sequential writes, up to 7200 random read IOPS, up to 1800 random write IOPS, and a 4.1 million hour MTBF rating. The rated read/write speeds for this SanDisk SSD aren't among the most impressive SSDs we've seen, but it's backed by a high MTBF and is also advertised as having very low power consumption. SanDisk backs this drive by a three-year warranty.
