Adata XPG SX930 SSD Review

Adata hits back with a new flagship SSD that incorporates high-endurance eMLC flash and a familiar JMicron controller.

80 Percent Sequential Read Mixed Workload

Our mixed workload testing is described in detail here, and our steady state tests are described here.

Moving over to mixed workloads doesn't help the SX930 much either. In these tests, Samsung's TurboWrite emulated SLC mode pushes its 850 EVO to the top of the chart. The SX930 480GB starts off strong, but again fails to scale as queue depth increases. A good SSD doesn't slow down when it's asked to perform more tasks at lower queue depths. In fact, you should actually see performance increase, and that just doesn't happen with the SX930.
