Behold! Enabling NTFS compression on Intel's SSD's

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So...yes lots will hate me for this...you should see the read speeds in AS SSD Benchmark but writes are slow because its random since ATTO uses 0fill by default and CrystalDiskMark is clever as the test file don't get compressed when it writes it.

If you want to test just right click on your SSD in computer > properties and check “Compress this drive to save disk space” and apply.
Note: you can click cancel before its done so it doesn’t do the whole drive which will allow you to test ATTO right away.

So this is what happens with three Intel SSD's in RAID 5 but would like to see what a single SSD gets up to with NTFS compression.

so does NTFS compression actually make a difference in real life scenarios? Have you tried loading times, say for games or photoshop? compressed vs uncompressed?

For those reading this... It CAN be helpful.. BUT!!! DO NOT USE the NTFS compression on a SANDFORCE based SSD... It will lower performance on those drives due to on-board compression...

Intel: YES, go for it... You will see SOME performance improvement, but it depends on your CPU and comprssability of the data, but mainly your CPU.
