Corsair Force MP500 480GB SSD Review

IOMeter is another open source synthetic benchmarking tool which is able to simulate the various loads placed on hard drive and solid state drive technology.
IOMeter setup

We test with both random read and write 4k tests, as shown above. There are many ways to measure the IOPS performance of a Solid State Drive, so our results will sometimes differ from manufacturer’s quoted ratings. We do test all drives in exactly the same way, so the results are directly comparable.

Benchmarked using our test settings with IOMeter, the drive fell way short of the official 250,000 IOPS for reads and 210,000 IOPS for writes at 209,961 IOPS and 159,366 IOPS for read and writes respectively. However, these results are better than the results for the Samsung SSD960 PRO drive using the same default Windows driver.
