We used CrystalDiskMark 8‘s custom settings to test the 4K random read performance of the drive through a range of queue depths. The setup for the tests is listed below.
Transfer Request Size: 4KB, Outstanding I/O: 1-32.
Corsair rate the 4K random read performance of the MP600 PRO at up to 660,000 IOPS. The best figure we saw from our custom CrystalDiskMark 8 settings was 414,579 IOPS at QD32.
At QD1, the drive sits mid-table in our random read chart, but at QD’s 2 and 4 the MP600 PRO sits on top of the lists. At QD32 the drive drops to third position in the chart.
