ADATA XPG SX6000: Benchmarking A ~$50 USD 128GB NVMe SSD On Linux
Written by Michael Larabel in Storage on 15 January 2018. Page 3 of 3. 6 Comments

In some workloads the ADATA XPG NVMe SSD could run in line with the more expensive Corsair Force MP500 128GB NVMe SSD.

But in other tests, the SX6000 comes in at the low-end.

The XPG SX6000 did perform well with DBench.

If you want to compare the performance of these SSDs to your own Linux system(s), simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1801150-FO-DISKTESTS73.

The performance of the ADATA XPG SX6000 is acceptable considering the price ($50~60 for 128GB), but obviously not the best in class. If you have more money to shell out, there are better NVMe SSDs that are only slightly more expensive like the Corsair Force MP500 series, which I use about a dozen of in different test systems, but if you are on a tight budget this is a very cheap NVMe SSD storage device that is available in capacities up to 1TB for less than $400 USD or 512GB for $200.

Should I run into any problems with this drive after extended use in the test systems, I'll certainly post an update. Anyone interested can find this NVMe SSD series at
