【Performance Test】Evaluation of Mach Xtreme Technology MX-DS series 100G SSD

Published Mar.09 2010,18:44 PM (GMT+8)


We have tested MXSSD2MDS 100GB SSD delivered by MX-Technology to have a look at its performance.

Mach Xtreme Technology is a new company targeted at professional consumers as well as enterprises, offering SSDs, memory modules and Flash products.

MX-Technology MXSSD2MDS 100GB SSD adopts Sandforce 1200 series as SSD controller and uses Intel NAND Flash chips.

Considering the spec of SATA transmission which is generally adopted by SSDs, we chose the motherboard with Intel chipsets as the testing platform equipped with Intel quad core processor and DDR3, under the new Windows 7 operating system.
Details of the specifications are shown below:

SSD Evaluation Report

SSD testing results of the test are as follows:

System Boost Performance in Windows System

The most generally-used operating systems for ordinary PCs are Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 which was launched in 2009. The startup process of the operating system is an important testing item for hard disks and SSDs, for the complex startup file reading is a good parameter of comprehensive evaluation as its speed is directly reflected.

We installed Windows 7 and observed the startup file transfer speed via the PCMark Vantage Start UP test, monitored and analyzed the startup process of PC through Vantage Vista Start. The core program loading time can be seen in the analysis data chart. The Windows startup file transfer speed of MXSSD2MDS 100GB SSD is 144.670MB/s, a rather outstanding performance.

ATTO Disk Benchmark v2.4.3

By testing read and write speed with the well-known ATTO Disk Benchmark, we found the SSD also excels in read and write.

h2benchw v3.6

This test clearly demonstrates the performance of the SSD under various application environments. With the speed of hard disk swap file at 71.23MB/s and the efficiency of executing Word at 159.22MB/s, the SSD presents a good performance in this testing item.

HDTune Pro v3.50

We tested the average read speed and many other items in the HDTune Pro. The read and other test performances are also wonderful, at a highest speed of 194MB/s. The distribution of random read also looks great.

PCMark05 / Vantage


In PCMARK Vantage, the SSD can be seen suitable for multimedia, film editing applications.

SSD, Next Stage

Better Then 2009 SSDs.

In view of IO Meter, the outcome of 5383.58 IOPS is very excellent,showing its strength in the SSD controller.

In terms of comprehensive scores, MX-Technology MXSSD2MDS 100GB SSD scores high, so we recommend the product as one of the best choices among next-generation high-performance SSDs.
