Yapt v0.3

Yapt (yet another performance test) is a benchmark recommended by a pair of drive manufacturers and was incredibly difficult to locate as it hasn’t been updated or used in quite some time.  That doesn’t make it irrelevant by any means though, as the benchmark is quite useful.  It creates a test file of about 100 MB in size and runs both random and sequential read and write tests with it while changing the data I/O size in the process.  The results are a good look at overall drive performance.

Yapt uses much larger transfer blocks, and is multithreaded to boot. Once the obscure underdog of our test suite, we’re glad we kept it around, as it’s proven to be one of the best true throughput tests for higher performance SSD’s. While the RevoDrive 3 X2 was able to get the jump on the competition, here we see it get leapfrogged by its younger brother.
