128KB Sequential Read / Write.
The setup for the tests is listed below.
Transfer Request Size: 128KB, Thread(s): 1, Outstanding I/O: 1-32.
In our own Sequential performance testing, we fell just short of the 3,300MB/s read and 2,700MB/s official maximum speeds for the drive. The peak write figure of 2,654MB/s (QD16) was closer to the official figure than the 3,222MB/s (QD32) read result.
128KB Sequential Read v QD compared.
At QD1 the drive sits at the bottom of the Sequential read results chart, but as the tested queue depths deepen the drive’s performance improves in relation to the drives around it in the chart.
128KB Sequential Write v QD compared.
Whereas the read performance of the FA100 improves in relation to the drives around it as the tested queue depth deepens, when it comes to Sequential writes the opposite is true. At QD1 the drive sits in the top10 of drives tested but by QD32 it’s in the bottom half of the results chart.
